A road user expressed concern about not only an increase in heavy trucks traveling across the Longtom Pass in the Lydenburg area but also an increase in the number of crashes involving trucks in this area.

Concerns include:

  • Reckless driving by some of these truck drivers.
  • Unsafe and illegal overtaking across barrier lines.
  • Failure by a truck company to clear a diesel spillage on the road.
  • Destruction of roads/ Deteriorating road conditions.

A video was also shared from the scene of a recent road crash:
