Trac N4 Toll Route Update – June 2015

 Take extra precautions when weather is poor

Poor visibility, mainly due to heavy mist during early morning hours or at night, causes dangerous driving conditions. Road users are reminded to switch head lights on, increase following distance and lower traveling speed during adverse conditions.

Veld fires during the winter months 

In the dry winter season and with strong winds veld fires often occur along the grassland areas adjacent to the N4. Smoke from the fires may swirl over the N4 and cause extremely dangerous driving conditions. Be extra cautious on the road during these conditions.

•         Reduce speed and obey speed limits
•         Switch headlights on
•         Keep following distance
•         Remain patient and considerate

•         Attempt to pass the vehicle in front of you when visibility is poor
•        Stop on the side of the road


Quality road infrastructure is an asset which benefits the economy, stimulates growth and development and provides a safe link between people and places. A road, however, needs on-going maintenance and improvement to ensure that it continues to add value.
