South African National Roads Agency Ltd (SANRAL) is planning to construct the N2 Knysna Bypass project in Western Cape, South Africa.

The project involves the construction of a 35km road including toll plazas, pedestrian ways, interchanges, shoulders, supporting walls, dividers and related facilities and the installation of safety systems.

Knysna Municipality will jointly undertake the project with SANRAL.

EOH Coastal & Environmental Services commenced environmental impact assessment (EIA) process in 2005 and application for authorisation for the proposed project and plan of study was submitted in 2005 to the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEAT).

In April 2006, proposed project plan of study was approved by DEAT.

In May 2007, a final scoping report was accepted by DEAT.

In 2009, SANRAL has proposed two alternative routes for the project and secured environmental impact assessment (EIA) are:

1. The ‘Proposed’ route that follows the proclaimed alignment from Groenvlei to Bracken Hill (31.3 km). This route consists of 8.7km of the existing N2 road from Groenvlei to the Buffels Bay intersection, and 22.8km of new road along the proclaimed alignment from the Buffels Bay intersection to Bracken Hill.

2. The ‘‘Short’ route’ that runs from Groenvlei to Springfield (23.1 km) via White Bridge. This would be composed of 13.7km of the existing N2 road from the Groenvlei to White Bridge, and 14.8km of new road mostly along the proclaimed alignment from White Bridge to the Uniondale Interchange and then to Springlfield.

On April 24, 2009, the Draft EIR was made available for public and authority for review and closed on June 26, 2009.

In May 2016, SANRAL has approved the construction of the project.

On September 14, 2016, SANRAL has issued EIA report for the public consultation until the end of October 2016.

Public consultation is underway and the council is still in discussions with SANRAL on the EIA as to the exact route of the bypass.

Construction works are expected to be commenced in September 2019 with completion slated in August 2021.
