N4 Toll Route Update | August 2018


Weather Warning

Poor visibility, mainly due to heavy mist during early morning hours or at night, causes dangerous driving conditions. Road users are reminded to switch head lights on, increase following distance and reduce travelling speed during adverse weather conditions.


Veld fires during the winter months 

In the dry winter season and with strong winds veld fires often occur along the grassland areas adjacent to the N4. Smoke from the fires may swirl over the N4 and cause extremely dangerous driving conditions. Be extra cautious on the road during these conditions.



  • Reduce speed and obey speed limits
  • Switch headlights on
  • Keep following distance
  • Remain patient and considerate



  • Attempt to pass the vehicle in front of you when visibility is poor
  • Stop on the side of the road



Quality road infrastructure is an asset which benefits the economy, stimulates growth and development and provides a safe link between people and places. A road needs ongoing maintenance and improvement to ensure that it continues to add value.

The N4 Toll Route is a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) toll road, and is approximately 570 kilometres long. TRAC has a 30-year concession with the South African and Mozambican national roads agencies – SANRAL and ANE respectively – signed in 1997 to develop, manage and maintain the road in a bid to stimulate and facilitate trade and investment in three key economical regions – Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Mozambique.

TRAC’s development and maintenance of the N4 toll road is possible through the funds generated from toll fees from the six toll plazas TRAC runs along the route.

Offering some of the most scenic vistas in South Africa, the TRAC N4 Toll Route also offers travelers a feast of historical, scenic and geological features that make for a trip along this majestic road an unforgettable experience. Furthermore, there are a multitude of leisure options to explore, including sports and nature activities, as well as eateries serving delicious, often unique, food and beverages. Read More.
