High traffic volumes recorded on SA main roads as holidaymakers return to their destinations

High traffic volumes

High traffic volumes are being recorded on the country’s main routes as holidaymakers return to Gauteng. The N3 toll Route Consortium has reported over 1 600 vehicles at the Driehoek Toll plaza in Heidelberg and around 2 000 at the Tugela Plaza.

There are also reports of rain on the N3 along the Van Reenen Pass. N3 Toll Concession Operations Manager, Thania Dhoogra says, “Increased traffic on the route may lead to congestion and delays. Law enforcement officers are on the route monitoring the traffic. And my implement traffic control measures on Van Reenan to regulate traffic flow should it be necessary to do so.

“Motorists are advised to please be patient and alert while travelling on the route and follow all traffic signs.” Earlier on N3 between Durban and Johannesburg, more than 1 500 vehicles were counted passing through the toll gates at the Mariannhill toll plaza, in Durban, travelling in a northerly direction towards Gauteng.

Close to 1000 vehicles were counted travelling south towards Durban. As scores of holidaymakers head back to Gauteng, the provincial traffic police have called on motorists to drive with caution.

Gauteng alone has recorded around 200 road fatalities this festive season so far. The N1 between Mokopane and Mookgophong was closed due to a serious accident – but has since been re-opened.

Gauteng Traffic Police Spokesperson, Sello Maremane says, “The Gauteng Traffic Police urge motorists to exercise caution following reported road crashes that led to most fatalities during the festive season. Traffic volumes are expected to increase on the major roads as a lot of people are expected to travel back to Gauteng from various provinces in order to resume with their economic activities.

Occupants of a light motor vehicle that caught alight at the toll plaza escaped without injury. Law enforcement agencies however urged commuters to inspect their vehicles before embarking on their journeys.
