Holidaymakers Anticipate Heavy Traffic on N3 During Return Home



Heavy traffic is expected on the N3

The N3 Toll Concession has cautioned that heavy traffic is expected on the N3 as more holidaymakers return to Gauteng.

This week, the N3 Toll Route witnessed busy traffic conditions. Jacaranda FM reports that vehicles ranging from 1000 to 1900 travelled towards Gauteng.

Thania Dhoogra, N3 Operations Manager, indicates that traffic authorities may introduce safety measures to manage the flow of vehicles.

“Road users should especially be prepared for high northbound traffic volumes, including possible congestion and delays, on Sunday, 7 January, between 09:00 and 18:00 and are reminded that should it be necessary, traffic authorities may implement safety precautions such as traffic calming measures at strategic locations along the route.”


Dhoogra advises motorists to be cautious of adverse weather conditions, as parts of the N3 are susceptible to severe thunderstorms, heavy rain, and often hail.

“Stay alert and informed of traffic and weather conditions along your route. Allow extra travel time to patiently and carefully negotiate difficult situations, should they arise.

“Drive defensively, adhere to warning signs, keep your vehicle’s headlights switched on, maintain safe following distances, stay within the speed limit, and take preventative measures to avoid emergencies.”
