N3 at Van Reenen's Pass remains closed

Johannesburg - The N3 highway at Van Reenen's Pass between the Free State and KwaZulu-Natal remained closed on Wednesday morning, the N3 Toll Concession said.

"At this stage it remains closed. We are still in the process of removing obstacles in that area," spokesperson Andy Visser said.

The road was closed on Monday evening after heavy snowfalls in the area.

Visser said the weather had "cleared up" and that the road could be reopened later on Wednesday morning.

There was "quite a serious traffic backlog" which needed to be cleared before other travellers could make use of the pass, Visser added.
