Rehabilitation works have kicked off on the Kaseme bridge section of the M2 motorway in South Africa. The Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) is executing the rehabilitation of the motorway at a cost of US $2.5m. Motorists traveling along the M2 are advised to use alternative routes.
According to the road agency the rehabilitation project will affect the M2 eastbound, the M2 westbound and the Mooi street offramp.
The rehabilitation project will include replacement of guardrails, repairs to bearings, bridge joints, corbel, stolen road furniture and concrete works.
Meanwhile, for the next six months, first lane on the M2 eastbound will remain closed provisionally. This is according to the road agency. Moreover, during the rehabilitation works, motorists are urged to use slow lanes, reduce speed for safe travel, and be wary of construction workers.
The M2 also known as the Francois Oberholzer Freeway is a major highway in Johannesburg, South Africa. The motorway connects with the N3 just to the south of the Central Business District eastwards.
