Trans African Concessions (TRAC) is again supporting the annual Rotary Greatest Train Race (GTR), which takes place this year on Saturday, August 24.
TRAC’s is offering special concessions to Class 1 vehicles at the Middelburg Toll Plaza during the closure of the R555 between eMalahleni and Middelburg between 5am and 2pm.
Qualifying motorists will be diverted by marshals and traffic officials onto the N4 receive a voucher at a discounted rate of R24.00 (instead of R62.00) at the Middelburg Plaza. The voucher, which must be handed to the toll collector when passing through the plaza, will only be valid during the road closure and is only applicable to motorists who pay cash. No other forms of payment, including electronic tag payments or GTR permits, will qualify for the discounted tariff.
TRAC vouchers will be available from TRAC marshals at the following locations:
* Corner of OR Tambo and Voortrekker Road (at the Sasol Garage)
* N4 off-ramp towards Middelburg, at the Ridge Casino
* T-junction at Van Dyksdrift Road
* Four-way stop at the R555 weighbridge
TRAC Marshals will also be at the designated parking zones to direct and manage traffic.
Road users are advised that traffic disruptions may occur on or towards the N4 Toll Route, due to the closure of the R555 for the duration of race, however this will be temporary and road users are urged to be patient.
TRAC’s 24-hour Helpdesk will be available to assist road users with queries and information relating to the N4 Toll Route and the special concession, throughout the event. The fully-operational call centre can be reached on 0800 87 22 64 or 082 881 4444 or via the Live Chat feature on our newly-launched website at www.tracn4.co.za.
The GTR is a charity road running event, organised by the local Rotary Club, to raise funds for the less fortunate while having fun at the same time.
