THE KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison, Mxolisi Kaunda, launched a provincial campaign aimed at creating awareness about the importance of road signage at Ntunjambili on Sunday.

Kaunda participated in the mounting of signage on the P15 road in Ntunjambili, between Nkandla and Kranskop.

Road P15 is a road-crash hot spot due to the number of fatal crashes that have occurred in the area.

One of the major crashes happened in April when a bus lost control, resulting in the death of 20 people, who were on their way to a traditional function.

“Having visible signage will assist motorists and road users in promoting road safety and curbing accidents. It will also assist drivers to be more cautious especially in high crash zones,” said the MEC.

He cautioned the public against vandalising signage, which puts the lives of road users at risk.

The department will be rolling out signage throughout KZN roads, especially targeting high crash zones and roads with poor signage.

Kaunda and families of road-crash
victims participated in a wreath-
laying ceremony at the bus accident scene.

“This is a sign that indicates the department has not forgotten about what happened to the victims. We want to show the families of the victims that we are still with them. Through this service, called Siyabakhumbula, we hope they will find comfort and healing,” he said.
