The Mozambican road safety institute INAV and road concessionaire Trans African Concessions (TRAC) have announced plans to improve road safety on the N4 toll road between Maputo and South Africa, the daily newspaper Noticias reports. The campaign will target the communities living along the stretches of road where accidents are most frequent - namely in the Lus Cabral and Malhampsene districts in Maputo and Matola respectively and around the 4 de Outubro secondary school in the border town of Ressano Garcia - through workshops and other awareness-raising activities.

In a related move, Noticias also reports that the aluminium smelter Mozal in Beluluane on the southern outskirts of Maputo has introduced measures to improve safety on the road linking the plant to the port of Matola to the southwest, which is used by heavy vehicles transporting raw materials and manufactured products to and from the smelter. Since fatigue is reportedly the main cause of truck accidents and as these occur mostly between 03.00 and 06.00, the company has decided to suspend transportation between these hours and to make drivers undergo compulsory alcohol and fatigue tests at other times.
