N3 Toll Route I Heritage Day long weekend I News Update I 22 September 2021

Busy traffic conditions are expected on the N3 Toll Route this long weekend as South Africans gear for leisure travel under the less restrictive Adjusted Alert Level 2 lockdown.

N3TC advises road users to familiarise themselves with the route and prevailing travel conditions ahead of their departures.

Visible policing, strict law enforcement and zero tolerance of traffic offenders will be the order of the day. Satellite stations and traffic checkpoints will be operated at key locations along the N3 Toll Route.

Extra caution required in construction zones

N3TC warns road users to reduce speed and be extra careful in construction zones. Although construction activities will cease during the long weekend, some lane restrictions will remain in effect between Villiers and Warden near the Grootspruit Bridge, as well as in the vicinity of the Holspruit Bridge. 

A climbing lane is currently being constructed near the Wagendrift Dam between Frere and Midway. 

Although two lanes will be open to traffic during the long weekend, some delays can be expected in the vicinity of this construction site. 

The rest of the route will have at least two lanes open to traffic in both directions for the duration of the long weekend.

Peak Traffic Forecast

High traffic volumes are expected southbound towards KwaZulu-Natal on Thursday, 23 September from 12h00 – 18h00 and on Friday, 24 September from 06h00 – 12h00.

On Sunday, 26 September, traffic volumes are expected to pick up from 06h00 in a northbound direction towards Gauteng and are expected to remain high until 18h00.
