Authorities say it may take up to two days to completely clear the debris.

South African National Road Agency Limited (Sanral) spokesperson Vusi Mona says: “In the meantime, we’re advising motorists to avoid the area, to use alternative routes while we wait for officials to clear the road.”

Mona has also cautioned against speculating about the cause of the collapse.

“People, especially those who are in responsible positions, should refrain from offering opinions that are not expert opinions. The police might come with a theory, Sanral might come with a theory. So let us wait.”
