4. After a further 14 kms (approximately), at the next major interchange (with the M1, signposted for Johannesburg/Pretoria), continue straight, towards Roodepoort (at this point N3 becomes N1).

5. Head west along N1 (concrete ring highway) just north of Johannesburg, for a further 25 kms (approximately).

7. Proceed along Hendrik Potgieter for about 16 kms, until you reach a major intersection with a large Sasol filling station on the left hand side (over the intersection).

8. Proceed straight across this intersection (the road becomes the N14, at this point).
