M4 road repairs underway between Boy’s Town and Westbrook Beach

Despite ongoing construction, the M4 will remain open to motorists.

Outstanding road repair work along various locations on the flood-damaged M4 route between Boy’s Town and Westbrook Beach is currently underway.

The announcement by the South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) comes as a relief to motorists who have been navigating the aftermath of the devastating floods in April 2022.

Sanral Eastern Region project manager Sumay Maharaj said the eight-month contract began on October 3 and is expected to be completed by May.

The construction of the mechanically-stabilised earth wall between Westbrook circle and Tongaat River bridge has been completed.

Despite ongoing construction, the M4 will remain open to motorists at all locations, albeit with temporary deviations in place.

Light motor vehicles are nevertheless advised to utilise the alternative M43 (Watson Highway) route via Desainager and La Mercy circle.

Motorists are urged to adhere to warning signs and speed restrictions within the construction zones for the safety of both workers and travellers.

Maharaj emphasised the importance of planning travel ahead of time and leaving for destinations earlier than usual to accommodate potential delays.
