Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula will today, Tuesday 17 December 2019, inspect the National Traffic Control Center as well as the Gauteng Central Operations Centre.

The former collects and collates national statistics pertaining to South Africa’s road network, while the latter oversees the freeway network in Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni and Tshwane, in real time, using live visuals.

Last week, Minister Mbalula launched the Festive Season Road Safety Campaign and showcased various on-site technologies used to combat road carnage.

Tomorrow’s visits are an opportunity for the Minister to inspect some remote technologies used to monitor and respond to traffic movement and emergencies.
