05 Dec On ‘TRAC’ for the holiday season
The Festive Season is traditionally one of the busiest times of the year on South African roads, including the N4 Toll Route. With thousands of motorists expected to travel between Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Mozambique between December 2017 and January 2018, Trans African Concessions (TRAC) has ensured that this national highway is geared up to accommodate high traffic volumes.
Traffic on the N4 toll road is expected to peak on the 8th, 15th and 22nd of December and again on the 1st and the 7th to the 9th of January. On these days, as well as throughout the festive season, TRAC’s roadside assistance units, patrol teams and the TRAC 24-hour Helpdesk will be on full alert in both South Africa and Mozambique in a bid to keep the road as safe as possible and promptly attend to accidents, incidents and emergencies.
On peak traffic days our response units, together with emergency services such as the SAPS, paramedics, Fire and Rescue and Provincial Traffic, will be deployed to strategic points along the route – namely Bronkhorstspruit, Middelburg, Milly’s, Mbombela (Nelspruit) and Matola Weigbhbridge (Mozambique) – to enhance incident/accident support.
Heavy traffic is again expected en route to the Lebombo Border Post in Komatipoort and therefore TRAC will again work closely with the Lebombo Border Control Operational Coordinating Committee (BCOCC) and Ressano Garcia Border officials by assisting with traffic management measures. TRAC will assist through the provision of several logistical requirements and with the distribution of traffic control information flyers to motorists.
All construction on the N4 toll road will be on hold during the construction sector’s annual leave period which is scheduled from 15 December 2017 to 12 January 2018. The permanent Stop/Go’s on Section 6 (Elandsvalley) and Section 16 (between Ressano Garcia and Moamba Plaza) will be reduced to one per section on 8 December, and completely removed on the 15th of the month until contractors return to site in January 2018. To enhance safety and regulate traffic flow, line markings and other infrastructural and road safety elements, will be put in place at some of these sections.
The safety and well-being of the users of N4 Toll Route is TRAC’s primary concern and we urge everyone using our beautiful road this holiday season to make full use of this initiative by calling the TRAC Helpdesk on 0800 87 22 64 for quick, effective assistance to any problem. We further encourage road users to stay up to date with what is happening on the road throughout the Festive Season by following us on Twitter @TRACN4route or visiting our website at www.tracn4.co.za.
Road safety is our concern, celebrating life is our priority!
