The R24 is a major East-West provincial route in the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area and North West province that links OR Tambo International Airport with Rustenburg via Johannesburg, Krugersdorp and Magaliesburg. The process of renaming the streets and freeway that form the route from Krugersdorp eastward to OR Tambo International after Albertina Sisulu was completed in 2013.

After passing through Central Johannesburg and some of Johannesburg's eastern suburbs (a section maintained by the Johannesburg Roads Agency, a department of the City of Johannesburg), the route becomes a freeway outside Eastgate Shopping Centre in Bedfordview, a section which is maintained by the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport, part of the Gauteng Provincial Government. This freeway section of the route intersects with the N3 and the N12 at Gillooly's Interchange. The freeway section of the route was renamed the Abertina Sisulu Freeway, after anti-apartheid stalwart Albertina Sisulu [1]. There are offramps that lead to Edenvale, and parts of Kempton Park, before the road ends in the vicinity of OR Tambo International Airport, at the R21 leading to Pretoria and Boksburg. The remaining streets forming the route, spanning different suburbs in various municipalities, were all renamed after Albertina Sisulu in 2013 [2]

The R24 forms the main road through Magaliesburg

It intersects the R21 near the airport and the N12 in the East Rand.
