The R511 is a Regional Route in South Africa. It begins as William Nicol Drive north of its interchange with the N1 in Fourways a suburb of Sandton, Johannesburg Metropole, Gauteng. South of the N1, the road is designated the M81. Heading north out of the city, it passes Montecasino, before crossing the R564 (Witkoppen Road). North of Witkoppen Road, it passes through the affluent Lonehill and Dainfern suburbs and the township of Diepsloot. It then forms an interchange with the N14, at the same time the R562 reaches its western end here. Just after crossing the N14, a section of the R114 reaches its western end at the R511. The road then reaches a t-junction. The north-south road becomes Pretoria's M26, and the road given off to the north-west towards Hartbeesboort is designated the R511. This road joins the R104 becoming co-signed with it, but goes under Pretoria's M4 freeway. The co-signed route crosses into the North West and enters Hartbeespoort, where the R511 departs, continuing north. The R514 and R513 roads' western termini both end at the R511, just north of the town. The R511 then forms an interchange with the N4. It then crosses the R566, before entering the town of Brits. The R512's northern end is an intersection with the R511 in the town. From the town, the R511 continues heading north-north-west, crossing into Limpopo. It then takes on the western terminus of the east-west R516. It ends just south of Thabazimbi at a junction with the R510.
