THE South African National Roads Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) has notified travellers that controlled blasting for drainage is scheduled to take place on the N2, Section 13, between Grahamstown and Fish River Pass, every Thursday, from Thursday, June 7 until Thursday, June 21, weather permitting. 

The blasts will take place, between 2pm and 4:30pm, approximately 25km to 35km east of Grahamstown, along the N2 between KM 80 and KM 92 route marker.
