Here is the beta from CT to Worcester.

After Du Toits Kloof turn right towards Rawsonville drive past the weigh station (do not go into Rawsonville), continue along this road until you get to the T junction. Turn right towards Worcester (the Shell is about 1km down the road).
This circumvents the Stop/Go on the N1.

For those driving to Montagu: Be aware of the newly installed speed camera on the outgoing (Robertson) side of Worcester - 60km zone.
Drive the speed limit through Robertson and Ashton - you have been warned.

There is also a new camera at the bottom of Du Toits Kloof (tunnel road). Just before the Toll Booths - 60km zone.

A little off route, but...
My parents were on their way back on the N2 yesterday and after a long wait at one of the stop and goes my dad decided to have a chat with one of the traffic controllers... Turns out, the reason for the long wait was due to the batteries on the 2-way radio being dead. The solution... don't allow any traffic through.

You have been warned ;) avoid them at any cost!

OMW, I went through there this past weekend, but I skip Worcester and go through Rawsonville and join up with the R62 again just before pumpkin patch...I hope I missed the camera...I was slightly in a rush :P
