JG Afrika oversaw the upgrade of a 48 km section of the N2 highway between Caledon and Riviersonderend.
Most of the work scope entailed widening the road, as well as upgrading its intersections to better accommodate the increase in traffic over the years and raise safety levels for road users.
The completed road will have a minimum surface width of 13,4 m, including two 3,7 m-wide lanes and three metre-wide shoulders, in areas. Where there are existing climbing lanes, the road is being widened to allow for 3,7 m-wide passing and 3,7 m-wide climbing lanes, as well as a 1,5 m-wide surfaced shoulder. Some of the existing climbing lanes are being extended and we are constructing new climbing lanes.
In addition, the work scope includes repairing the existing road, as well as widening of Droogas River Bridge and Maandagsout River Bridge and lengthening 14 major culverts along the route.
