As a result, both northbound lanes will be open to traffic, unless an emergency requires a closure. 

These routes will be monitored throughout the day. 

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has forecast partly cloudy conditions in Durban and Newcastle for Monday, with rainy conditions expected in the Ulundi and Richard’s Bay regions. 

However, cloudy conditions are expected over the Heidelberg region, with a 30% chance of rainfall. 

So far, no incidents along the Cedara/Heidelberg route have been detected. 

Drivers are urged to travel with patience and caution, and to remember to keep a safe following distance. 

Any problems, emergency assistance and route information can be found by calling N3 Toll Concession’s helpline on 0800 63 4357.
