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.
