Construction at Crompton & Shepstone Road Intersection – April 8,9

Another temporary deviation will be in effect at the Crompton/ Qashana Khuzwayo (Shepstone) roads intersection in New Germany from 07:00 on Saturday, April 8 until 17:00 on Sunday, April 9.

This deviation is to accommodate the laying of a new water pipe across Crompton Road during this time. Work on this began last weekend, but was not able to be completed due to unforeseen challenges with the road surface, and therefore will be done this weekend (April 8 and 9).

Motorists will have access to Crompton Road from Qashana Khuzwayo, but the roadway will be reduced from four lanes to two. One-half of Crompton road will be closed and traffic will be moved onto the other half. Once work has been completed on the first half, traffic will be moved onto the previously closed area until the whole job is complete.

Motorists can also access Qashana Khuzwayo via Cherry Lane. Motorists are requested to use the alternative routes on the affected days to avoid delays.

Road resurfacing at MR577 / Inanda Road Intersection

The eThekwini Municipality is in the process of dramatically improving public transport in the City through the construction of a world-class Integrated Rapid Public Transport Network (IRPTN). Forming part of the network, is the C3 route which will connect the areas of Bridge City and Pinetown with one another.

Group Five Construction has been appointed for the construction of a portion of the route. Included in the scope of works is the resurfacing of the roadway at the intersection of Inanda Road and the MR577 which will take place from 7 – 10 April 2017. To allow for this construction, traffic flow will need to be re-routed as follows:

• The entire section in the centre of the intersection will be closed off to traffic.
• Traffic heading north and south at Inanda intersection will access the deviation in the middle of the road allocated for traffic.
• Traffic heading east and west of the Inanda intersection will not be disrupted.

Drivers are to be aware that there will be a traffic safety officer present at all times and four flagmen will be placed at the intersection, day and night, to control traffic.

The work will be carried out from 07h00 on Friday, 7 April 2017 until 06h00 on Monday, 10 April 2017.
