The N4 is said to be “A really safe road”

This year marked the third consecutive year of no fatalities ensued over the Easter weekend on the N4, a national route for which Trans African Concessions (TRAC) is responsible.

Most plazas reached highest traffic flow figures ever recorded and through teamwork, TRAC was able to promote and monitor road safety along the route running from Pretoria to the Mozambican border.


The TRAC Easter Rescue and Road Safety Campaign played a key role in keeping the N4 fatality-free. Mpumalanga Emergency Services and TRAC Assist teams were stationed at Alzu Petroport near Middelburg and smaller units deployed to strategic points along. The initiative encouraged road law enforcement for road users and safety.

The visibility of authorities minimised the response time of road accidents which in turn reduced traffic flow disruption. This achievement would not have been possible without the cooperation of the road users.
