N3 Toll Route | Travel Alert | Tuesday, 20 September 2022 @ 16h00
N3TC warns road users to be prepared for forecasted inclement weather which may affect traffic flow along the N3 Toll Route tonight.
According to the South African Weather Service, a cold front, accompanied by persistent rain and light snow, is expected to affect parts of the N3 Toll Route during the course of this evening. These conditions may cause roads to become slippery and dangerous.
In an effort to assist emergency services, N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) appeals to road users to be prepared for possible traffic congestion and delays.
“Keep sufficient emergency supplies in your vehicle, including warm clothes and blankets, water, food, medication, a cell phone, its charger and a torch,” says N3TC’s operations manager, Thania Dhoogra.
Drivers are requested to adjust their driving behaviour to the prevailing road and weather conditions. “Reduce your travelling speed, increase following distances, and keep your vehicle’s headlights switched on, especially when visibility is poor or roads are wet.
Do not overtake and take care to only stop at designated parking areas when it is safe to do so.
With caution, consideration and patience, we can help make our roads safer,” ends Ms Dhoogra.
