The entire N3 Toll Route (in both the south- and northbound directions) from Harrismith in the Free State to Cedara in Kwazulu-Natal is *NOW CLOSED TO TRAFFIC* as a result of the current spate of uncontrollable violent attacks on road users, trucks, security and emergency services and businesses.
The Mooi River South (Wimpy) Ramp plaza near Mooi River as well as the Mooi River Enforcement Park Home facility were set alight. Truck fires have also been reported in the vicinity of the Mooi and Tugela plazas, and more threats are being received in this region.
In the light of this, and in the interests of safety and security *Mooi and Tugela toll plazas have also been closed*.
All vehicles should *immediately return to the nearest place of safety* and remain there until further notice.
N3TC strongly recommends that road users avoid these volatile areas.
Please immediately report any emergencies or problems to the 24-hour N3 helpline:
