Know the jurisdictions of the JRA M1 and M2 highways

The Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA), which is responsible for the repair and maintenance of roads and related infrastructure within the municipal boundaries of the City of Johannesburg (CoJ), advises road users demarcations of the M1 and M2 motorways.

Following numerous service-related complaints on social media platforms regarding motorway maintenance, the JRA noted the confusion and frustration of road users when reporting problems on various sections of the M1 and the M2.

According to the CoJ’s Geographic Information System, JRA jurisdiction over the M1 (south) begins at Shakespeare Avenue (which connects to Xavier, Ormonde and Ridgeway suburbs) and ends at the M1 (north), where Corlett begins Drive (which connects to Melrose and surrounding suburbs).

On the M2 motorway, JRA jurisdiction is between Lower Germiston Road and Main Reef Road (East).

Sections of the highways outside the municipal boundaries of the CoJ are shared between the South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) and the Gauteng Provincial Department of Roads and Transport.

Members of the public are encouraged to use applicable logging rigs to report road defects within JRA jurisdiction. The JRA thanks the road users in advance for their cooperation.
