N3 Toll Route | Traffic Update | 04 Dec 2021 @ 09H30

N3 Toll Route was fully reopened to traffic at Van Reenen and Tugela Plaza in the early hours of the morning. This follows the total closure of this part of the route as a result of an unlawful truck blockade which started before 05h00 yesterday morning and lasted throughout the day.

“N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) appreciates the efforts and commitment of all road incident management services who assisted to resolve the situation and then worked tirelessly throughout the night to clear the route,” says Thania Dhoogra, N3TC’s operations manager.

“These disruptions place an additional burden on law enforcement, emergency services and road users, not only on the N3 Toll Route, but in the entire region. N3TC values your support and patience under trying conditions.”

Traffic is currently flowing freely on the N3 Toll Route. No incidents disrupting the flow of traffic have been reported this morning.

Road users should, however, be aware that wet weather conditions and poor visibility may be experienced along large parts of the route this weekend. “Motorists are requested to reduce speed, increase following distances and keep headlights switched on when travel conditions are poor. Stay alert and travel safely,” ends Ms Dhoogra.

Traffic information and emergency assistance on the N3 Toll Route are available from the 24/7 N3 Helpline 0800 63 43 57 or follow @N3Route on Twitter.

N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) manages a 415km section of the N3 Toll Route between Cedara Interchange in KwaZulu-Natal and the Heidelberg South Interchange in Gauteng.
