Trans African Concessions (TRAC), the N4 concessionaire, says it is seriously concerned about the number of road accidents which have lately been occurring on the stretch of the road between Matola and Maputo, some of which have resulted in deaths and heavy material damages as well as spreading grief and despair among Mozambican families.
The entity states that the accidents which have been occurring in that section since last November are not related to the absence of a central separator between the east and west-bound lanes, but are the result of speeding and non-compliance with traffic rules.
TRAC therefore urges Traffic Police “to intensify speed control operations”.
“To help restrict speed, more speed bumps will be installed. This will not be the first time we have built speed bumps in this section of the N4. In addition, TRAC will finance the purchase of speed control equipment for the Traffic Police, including training, to ensure that violators are fined exemplary amounts,” a statement reads.
Additionally, TRAC will erect a central barrier, following recent approval by the ANE. The works should start in the second half of January 2020.
This stretch of the N4 has recently been rehabilitated by TRAC and expanded from the previous two lanes in each direction to three. The works were part of TRAC’s undertaking to improve infrastructure and traffic flow in the cross-border corridor, the main objective of which was to improve traffic flow between Maputo and Matola, on one of the busiest stretches of road in Africa.Source: Savana
