Construction ramped up on R573 Moloto Road

Road user behaviour has been identified as a major contributing factor to horrific crashes and fatalities on the Moloto Road. Part of the planned intervention to promote road safety includes widening the current single-lane carriageway into a dual-lane carriageway in each direction, adding a shoulder, and closing off illegal access points. SANRAL has also introduced four traffic circles/roundabouts – three in Mpumalanga and one in Limpopo – to serve as speed-calming measures and to minimise fatalities. SANRAL has invested R3.7 billion for the first phase of the R573 Moloto Road in the Mpumalanga and Limpopo sections. SMMEs will benefit to the tune of 30% of the project value. In line with SANRAL’s Transformation Policy, the inclusion of youth- and women-owned businesses will be prioritised.
