TRAC set to tackle the Easter weekend

MBOMBELA – In anticipation of this, TRAC will again boost its efforts to accommodate the influx of traffic to ensure the N4 highway east of Tshwane stays safe and free of congestion.

Statistics indicate that the Easter weekend sees the biggest surge in traffic volumes on this route, with traffic expected to increase between 12:00 and 22:00 on Thursday April 13 and again on Monday April 17. In light of this, the annual TRAC N4 Easter Road Safety Campaign will be held at Alzu Petroport in Middelburg and at specific spots along the 570-kilometre route, on both days.

Emergency services and TracAssist will be stationed at this popular rest stop from 10:00 to 22:00 on both these days, from where they will be dispatched simultaneously in the event of incidents or accidents. The participating emergency services will include private and public ambulance services and paramedics, Fire and Rescue, provincial traffic, SAPS, pathology units and TRAC Accident Response.
Smaller response units will also be stationed at strategic points on the route – namely Bronkhorstspruit, Milly’s, Mbombela and Pessene Weighbridge in Mozambique.
