In a recent development, motorists using the N11 route have been urged to exercise caution while travelling along the road after emergency personnel worked diligently to recover two trucks involved in separate incidents.
The initial incident occurred shortly after 3 pm, approximately 15 km from Ladysmith towards Newcastle.

As a consequence of the first incident, the road had to be temporarily closed to facilitate the recovery process, leading to delays in traffic flow. However, Road Angels Traffic Information has confirmed that the recovery process was successfully completed by 4 pm. Thereby enabling the resumption of regular traffic flow along the route.

The truck veered off the road before overturning, mitigating any hindrance to traffic flow.
