R573 Moloto Road upgrades forge ahead

Spanning Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Limpopo, the 160km Moloto Road (R573) has a reputation as one of the country’s deadliest. It is used by over 60,000 commuters daily. SANRAL’s planned interventions to promote road safety include 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 as speed-calming measures.
