  • 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

Upgrading, rehabilitation and maintenance work

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.

As the concessionaire of the N4 Toll Route between Tshwane and Maputo (Mozambique), TRAC is committed to providing a road of high standards. This requires regular road and maintenance works which may, at times, inconvenience road users.

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.
