Thread: Traveling to Joburg from Cape Town - roadworks?

  1. #1

    Default Traveling to Joburg from Cape Town - roadworks?

    Planning to drive to Joburg from Cape Town via Bloemfontein, tomorrow, which I haven't done in years. I have heard there are roadworks along this stretch. How much travel time should I add due to any potential delays? Any advice would be greatly appreciated..

    This should be useful and it's also updated regularly:

    There's a big stretch just outside Bloemfontein. You can circumvent by taking the R706 and coming onto the N1 at Springfontein

    Drove the road earlier this year, yes there are, nothing too bad, should hold you about 20mins.

    Thank you for the responses - greatly appreciated - the TomTom link was also very useful. Just wish the petrol price would sink a little lower, or Tesla would start selling their electric cars in this country.. Thank you again

    Its actually about 20min per roadblock...
    did this the same at the end of last year, so added an extra 1.5 hours to the trip from all the waiting...
