The Johannesburg Road Agency (JRA) has announced that severe road infrastructure damage has been reported across the city.

According to the agency, several areas have been impacted heavily by extreme weather conditions, and teams have been dispatched to areas to secure damaged roads and bridges, including implementing closures where necessary to ensure the safety of the public.
