N3 toll toute to temporarily close today as Eskom removes overhead power lines
The N3 Toll Concession warned motorists that this busy section of the highway would be closed for 15-minute periods until 1pm.
JOHANNESBURG - The N3 toll route near the De Hoek Toll Plaza will be closed for about three hours from 10am on Thursday morning to remove Eskom’s overhead power lines.
The N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) warned motorists that this busy section of the highway would be closed for 15-minute periods until 1pm.
In a statement, the N3TC urged motorists to make plans in advance.
“This temporary closure is required by Eskom in order to dismantle and remove a decommissioned high-voltage transmission overhead power line. Three-phase conductors will be removed sequentially during this period. A 15-minute full road closure is required per phase conductor to move each one across the road.
“All traffic will be completely stopped during each of the 15-minute road closure periods, but will thereafter be allowed to flow for a 30-minute period until all three powerlines have been removed.”
