16 Feb Bringing light to Malalane traffic cops
Trans African Concesssions (TRAC) prides itself on the solid relationships it has cemented with communities and stakeholders along the N4 Toll Route, from the east of Tshwane in Gauteng to Maputo, Mozambique.
Apart from offering world class infrastructure and ease-of-travel, maintaining high road safety standards on the N4 Toll Route is a top priority for TRAC. This view has led to the company forming strong ties with traffic law enforcement authorities in the regions which make up our route. This includes the Malalane area in Nkomazi, Mpumalanga, where the local traffic officials have been experiencing difficulty in performing certain night-time tasks due to a lack of equipment, more specifically, flashlights.
Working on a road at night, especially in challenging conditions and situations (such as accidents) requires superior, easy-to-use lighting equipment. Conventional flashlights simply don’t do the job which led the Malalane traffic authorities to approach TRAC and ask for assistance in this matter.
TRAC jumped at the opportunity and donated six top-of-the-range NightSearcher Explorer 800 Rechargeable LED Flashlights. These hi-tech torches are extremely powerful delivering a 500 metre beam and 800 lumens of light output. Furthermore, although robust, they are ultra-light due to their high-spec aluminium housing which also makes them water and shock resistant.
Provincial Traffic Inspector in Malalane, Joseph Matshaphala, received the flashlights on behalf of his colleagues and expressed how helpful the new equipment will be. According to him the flashlights will make a notable difference in the department’s efficiency during night-time incidents and situations which in turn will benefit road users and TRAC.
