The full re-opening of the N7 bridge will in all likelihood take several months, this is the word from the City of Cape Town authorities.
Traffic flow on the N7 bridge in the vicinity of Acacia Park will continue in the present southbound direction only, until at least mid-day on Friday, 13 October.
The N7 bridge was damaged by an informal settlement fire under the bridge in the early hours of last Monday morning.
The construction of temporary cross-overs to allow a single lane of traffic in either direction on the southbound carriageway has not yet been completed.
The signage and markings required to direct the traffic is also not ready as yet.
Traffic in the direction of the Milnerton area has been re-routed to Meldon and Frans Condradie Roads.
