[LISTEN] City of Joburg monitoring safety of Selby Bridge

The City of Johannesburg says it is monitoring the state of the Selby bridge as the Kaserne Bridge remains closed fof for major repairs.

Motorists using the M2 bridge between Joe Slovo Drive and the Maritzburg onramp are being urged to use alternative routes until next year.

Siki Mgabadeli spoke to speak to an engineer from the Johannesburg Roads Agency, Thomas Tshongo, to find out more.

We are continuously motoring the state of the bridge [Selby], based on the continuous monitoring assessment we have taken action on Kazerne. Repair works are still coming.

Thomas Tshongo, Johannesburg Roads Agency Engineer 

Elements of the bridge around Kazerne fell and because of that we have a deck which is moving so that is the main issue. The safety of the motorists as well as the workers of the contractor comes first, so we have to consider all that.
