N3TC Update #21DayLockdown
posted Thursday 9 April 2020
Quiet roads this Easter Weekend.
Time to dream about your future travels.
Peak traffic conditions on the N3 Toll Route over the Easter long weekend have always been the norm. For as long as we can remember, this weekend has been one of the busiest travel periods in our region, with all the stops pulled out to ensure that traffic keeps flowing and the route remains safe to thousands of travellers.
Not this year.
With South Africa under lockdown, and only authorised vehicles being allowed to travel the N3 Toll Route as per the current COVID-19 regulations, traffic conditions will be very different.
However, staff of N3 Toll Concession (N3TC), the company managing the N3 Route between Cedara in KwaZulu-Natal and Heidelberg in Gauteng, will still be out there to perform their duties in the interest of all frontline and essential service providers having to make use of the N3 to keep our country moving and safe.
While our ordinary way of life has, for now, been suspended, we know that someday soon, we will have the opportunity to travel again, to meet up with our loved ones and friends, to enjoy their companionship and the freedom to explore.
Wherever you are, whether you are on the frontline or staying at home, N3TC thanks you for doing your part to keep our nation safe.
Let us know how you are spending your time this Easter weekend, and what are your plans for when you can take a road trip again; which favourite places would you like to visit and people you are looking forward to see.
