WITH the start of the mid-year school holidays coinciding, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (Sanral) has appealed to motorists to observe all the rules of the road.

Logashri Sewnarain, Sanral Eastern Region manager, said the roads will be extremely busy as people leave Gauteng as soon as schools close.

Logashri said construction and general maintenance work will continue during the holiday season.

Traffic may be restricted in certain construction zones to one lane in each direction under reduced speed limits.

Road users are requested to obey traffic regulations, keep a safe following distance, and show regard for construction and maintenance teams.

She said in KwaZulu-Natal, automated electronic toll payment are operational at the Mariannhill and Oribi toll plazas, the oThongathi, Umvoti and Mtunzini mainline toll plazas, and the King Shaka Airport ramp toll plaza on the Sanral toll routes.

It is also available at the Mooi river and Tugela toll plazas on the N3 toll concession toll route.

Road users with electronic tags no longer have to wait in queues at toll plazas or pay cash at the booms.

“Automated payment makes it easier for motorists who undertake long- distance journeys.

“It will reduce travel time and result in safer and more enjoyable road journeys.”

Incidents should be reported to either the South African Police Services (10111) or the National Traffic Call Centre on 012 665 6075.
