B2 road stretch between Walvis Bay and Swakop off-limits for trucks for now

Leandrea Louw
The Minister of Works and Transport John Mutorwa has in terms of Section 73 (1) (a) and (b) of the Road Traffic and Transport Act. 1999 (Act No 22 of 1999) temporarily prohibited trucks above 5 tonnes to use the B2 road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.

The prohibition is effective from the 19 November 2021 untill 31 January 2022. Drivers with trucks above 5 tonnes are thus required to use the MR44 / C34 road (behind the dunes) to avoid road congestion and traffic accidents during the 2021/2022 festive season.
