SANRAL has imposed stringent measures at its toll plazas and is following the guidelines issued by the Department of Health to ensure the health of its employees as well as road users in its efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19. SANRAL is proactively responding to the call by President Cyril Ramaphosa for all South Africans to assist in halting the spread of the virus.
Precautionary measures which SANRAL has put in place include increasing communication and awareness efforts to employees, heightening health, sanitation and cleaning activities, and restricting access to only core staff at our plazas. Additional sanitisers (including personal sanitisers) have been made available at all the plazas to staff and these are used regularly when handling money, cards and interfacing with the public.
Each toll operator has sanitizer in their booth to use after each transaction to protect themselves and the curb the onward transmission of viruses to the motorist. After each shift the surfaces in the toll booths are disinfected. Fighting the spread of COVID-19, becomes a collective responsibility for each and every one of us.
Motorists, that have permission to travel in terms of the regulations for essential goods and services, must please consider the following when transacting at toll plazas:
• Avoid cash transactions wherever possible. If you have no option but to pay with cash, please try to have the exact amount.
• Where dedicated credit cards or e-tags available please use these lanes to reduce direct contact or interaction with toll operators.
• To avoid contracting or transmitting COVID-19, focus on conscious and regular handwashing, use antimicrobial gels, keep antibacterial wipes in your car and keep a safe distance of at least one meter from people who are showing symptoms of the virus.
Let’s all try do our part!
