The agency needs to do geotechnical investigations ahead of starting rehabilitation work on a sinkhole near flying saucer interchange.

Sanral’s Progress Hlahla says the agency has been aware of the sinkhole since the beginning of January.

“We have planned for further investigations of the N1 sinkhole from 6 February 2022. As a result, we will need to close the N1 Southbound between the Flying Saucer Interchange and Botha Avenue on N1/R21 from 23h00 on Sunday, 6 February 2022 until 04h00 on Monday 7 February 2022. Only one lane will be open during this period,” says Hlahla.

Alternative routes will be open.

“The duration of the closure will be kept as short as possible to avoid any further disruptions. Motorists travelling southwards towards Johannesburg may consider using the following alternative routes:

From Polokwane, offramp at Proefplaas Interchange (145) towards Pretoria CBD using the N4/M2 and join the M3 towards Fountains and join the N14.

“From OR Tambo International Airport, continue on the R21 towards Fountain Circle and join the N14.”
