VAAL TRIANGLE - The N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) says nearly 1,000 people have been killed on the route between January and October this year. The N3 toll route stretches from Heidelberg, Gauteng, to Durban. According to the N3 Toll Concession’s Miles Le Roux, at least a hundred crashes occur per month on this busy route. Le Roux said compared to 2017 crashes have increased from 888 to 999 from January to October 2018. Le Roux says heavy vehicles account for the majority of the crashes.
