R28 Road project - Motorists to expect delays, diversions
As a result of a rehabilitation project that is currently underway, the Department of Roads and Transport is appealing to motorists to exercise patience and caution when making use of the R28 road. The road connects Sebokeng and Westonaria in the southwest of Johannesburg.
R28 had degraded over the years due to increased road usage by heavy duty trucks, particularly from the mines and farms in the area. The R237 million rehabilitation project is scheduled to be completed over 24 months.
“The single carriageway provides a bypass for road traffic from the south of Johannesburg to the N12 and the North West Province. It essentially supports the agricultural and mining sectors of the economy,” said MEC Ismail Vadi at the launch in April.
The project scope includes significant road works along 29 kilometres stretch; reinstating road markings and signage; replacing damaged signs and guardrails; clearing the road reserve and drainage structures, and cutting overgrown grass.  
MEC Vadi calls “on motorists to familiarize themselves with planned lane reductions or road closures during off-peak and peak times, plan their routes in advance to avoid delays and consider alternative routes”.
Furthermore, he added that the Department is mindful of traffic inconvenience caused to motorists and humbly appeals for patience, courtesy and consideration during this period.
Motorists are further cautioned to exercise patience as the Department is currently undertaking a number of road rehabilitation projects which are at various stages of construction.
These include Cedar Road and William Nicol Drive (P79-1) in Fourways; P46/1 (K89) between Sedibeng and Ekurhuleni; D1944 Road Rust De Winter, north east of Tshwane; Rose Road (D904) in Sedibeng, R513 (D670) between Bronkhorstspruit and Ekangala; R511 towards the Gauteng/North West border and N14 between Diepsloot and Brakfontein.
