Sir Lowry’s Pass has been closed due to a veldfire. Provincial traffic chief Kenny Africa says the N2 has been closed at Botriver and the Gordons Bay turnoff. Motorists are advised to use alternative routes from Cape Town via Gordons Bay Kleinmond to Botrivier, in both directions.
City of Cape Town Traffic Service’s Richard Coleman says all outgoing motorists are required to make a U-turn at the Sir Lowry’s road intersection. Coleman says motorists can expect further closures.
“No heavy duty trucks or buses will be able to travel through the R44 Rooi Els due to the road works,” Coleman stated.
City of Cape Town Fire & Rescue Service Spokesperson, Theo Layne, says there is no immediate danger to property.
