Snow closes Western Cape roads

The N1 between Beaufort West and Richmond as well as the road between Victoria West and Three Sisters was closed on Monday due to heavy snowfalls in the area.

There were two accidents on the stretch of road on Monday morning.

Western Cape traffic services have warned of poor visibility and a slippery roadway.

Spokesperson Kenny Africa said the road will be closed indefinitely and added, “We will inform the public when the road is open again.”
