Johannesburg - Motorists have been warned to be vigilant as heavy traffic volumes are expected on the highways towards Gauteng on Sunday, provincial traffic police said.

"Some roads are significantly damaged in Gauteng and other provinces due to recent heavy rains," spokesperson Obed Sibasa said on Saturday.

"Road users... are advised to be extra vigilant and to avoid driving or riding on collapsed road surfaces or flood damaged roads or freeways and also to look out for potholes."

The highways expected to be busy were: The N1 south from Limpopo, N1 north from Free State, N3 north from KwaZulu-Natal, N4 west from Mpumalanga, N4 east from the North West and N12 east from Potchestroom.

Sibasa said there would be roadblocks on all major routes.

"Our objective is to curb carnage and fatalities on Gauteng's roads.

"We appeal to road users to be responsible, adhere to the rules of the road and to comply," he said.
