Road users are advised to be alert when travelling along the R103 at the Cedara interchange due to the implementation of a new three-way stop.
A statement issued on behalf of the N3 Toll Concession stated that the new three-way stop planned at the Cedara interchange (N3/R103 intersections) was to improve traffic flow and enhance safety.
“N3TC will implement a new permanent three-way stop on the R103 (at the north- and southbound N3/Cedara Road interchanges in KwaZulu-Natal) during April 2019. The R103 three-way stop will not impact traffic on the N3 Toll Route, but will improve traffic flow at the intersections,” the statement said.
Road users were advised to be alert when travelling along the R103 at the Cedara interchange and to expect and obey the new three-way stop signs.
The N3TC cautioned road users to always reduce speed and stay alert when approaching these intersections.
“This N3TC-initiative is yet another measure to enhance road safety and to improve mobility,” said Lukas Edwards, the toll concession’s project engineer. He said a three-way stop in such an area, where a key transport node crosses over a busy highway and traffic volumes high, would go a long way to control traffic, reduce congestion and decrease driver frustration.
