Mighty Men keep N3 busy

2009-04-21 00:00

Motorists travelling on the N3 over the next few days are advised to be aware of heavy volumes of traffic expected for the Mighty Men Conference in Greytown.

Although the event begins on Friday and ends on Sunday, traffic from today until Wednesday next week is expected to be heavy on the N3 highway.

Media spokeswoman for the event, Bianca Ortmann, said yesterday that just over 60 000 men have registered, with the conference expected to reach a total of 200 000 delegates.

“Certain measures have been put in place, but estimated traffic volumes may cause queues at the plazas and subsequent delays,” said Andy Visser, PR manager for the N3 Toll Concession.

The Mighty Men Conference delegates travelling on the southbound carriageway (towards Durban) and planning to make use of the N3TC Mooi Toll Plaza ramps should keep left when approaching the plaza.

“Motorists are requested to be patient and take note of any communication via the N3TC variable message signs [electronic signs along the highway] along the route,” said Visser.

“We urge motorists to travel with care, take regular stops, buckle up and comply with the indicated speed limits,” said Visser.
