ALL LANES AT VAN REENEN’S PASS NOW OPEN TO TRAFFIC

With law enforcement, emergency and recovery services working through the night, N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) can now confirm that ALL LANES (both north- and southbound) have been re-opened to traffic again at Van Reenen’s Pass (between Harrismith and Tugela Plaza/Ladysmith).

Between 60 and 70 trucks had to be towed away after protestors blocked this national route at Van Reenen.

Heavy vehicles were stacked over at least a 10km distance in both directions of the N3 Toll Route in the vicinity of Van Reenen. Large volumes of traffic were also diverted away from this area.

Emergency services cleared the northbound section for traffic last night; and re-opened the southbound lanes this morning.

“N3TC expresses its gratitude to all services and road users for the sterling support received at this challenging time,” says commercial manager, Con Roux.

“We expect busy traffic conditions today as the backlog of traffic continues to be cleared; and request both truckers and motorists to be extra cautious and patient,” ends Roux.

Essential real-time traffic information can be obtained from N3 Toll Concession’s 24-hour helpline on 0800 63 4357; or via Twitter: @N3Route.
