According to the deputy director of Provincial Traffic Media Liaison, Charles Bramwell, fires are raging on the N2 near Witelsbos with heavy smoke and Provincial Traffic took a decision in the interest of the safety of motorists that they will immediately close the N2 at Trivolia bridge.
The alternative route will be via the R62 to Karreedouw onto Joubertina to Misgund into the Western Cape.
The South African National Roads Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) would like to notify travellers that the N2 Tsitsikamma Toll Plaza is closed due to fire.
The alternative route to Cape Town would be via the R62 Kareedouw, Uniondale (the Langkloof road).
Motorists will not be able to get to George as the passes from R62 to George are also closed.
