The KZN Department of Transport has announced that
their team has been working throughout the weekend to repair the sinkhole on
the N3 towards Durban, after the Key Ridge interchange.

Motorists can still expect a traffic backlog, from
Peacevale to the Hammarsdale interchange, as part of the freeway is still closed
while workers wait for the concrete to dry up before reopening of the road.

The sinkhole formed as a result of April’s
torrential rains which caused the soil to erode from underneath the ground
surface.

Road Traffic Inspectorate spokesperson Zinhle Mali
told The Witness that traffic was still being diverted to one
lane.

She urged motorists to approach the area with
caution.
