Twickenham Mine hosts road safety campaign to curb accidents


Twickenham Mine wants road users to be safe at all times. The message was effectively spread when the mine hosted a safety campaign for the festive on December 13. The campaign was held on the R37 just next to the mine’s offices.

The traffic department from Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality were also part of the successful campaign.

The campaign started during the early hours of the morning with the management of the mine and the traffic officers stopping the cars checking for their roadworthiness. The team also handed a message of encouragement to the motorists. The message was “Do not drive and text”

Twickenham Mine’s Jeffery Nkobeni said safety is their priority in the mine.

 “This is why we came here to let our motorists know all about safety on the roads. We partnered with the municipality’s traffic department to ensure that we successfully deliver the message to road users.”

“We are aware of the accidents that happen on the R37 road, so we need to come to the party in ensuring that people are taught of safety on the roads

“We must not drive and text. If you feel that you are tired on the road just park your car at a safer place and rest. This will mean you will arrive safe at your destination”

He said the mine will always encourage safety on the roads as to curb fatalities.

Victor Lekwadu, chief traffic officer at Fetakgomo Tubatse’s traffic department said the R37 is one of the busy routes in the province.

“We need campaigns of this magnitude which will educate the motorists about the rules of the roads.  Drivers also need to be responsible so that they can arrive at their different destinations.  Drinking and driving is also a major challenge in our roads. We are warning the motorists to refrain from drunk driving.”

One of the motorists Lerato Maleka told Sekhukhune Times that they are concerned about accidents happening on the busy road.

“We thank the mine and the municipality in trying to combat accidents on the road. We hardly hear of these campaigns and we believe this will teach our people about road safety. We must not only practice safety in our jobs but we must do it   while driving too.

“We hope the mine organises more of this campaigns, since R37 is a busy road and has a bad record of people losing their precious lives. We want more lives to be saved. We urge the mine to keep on saving lives of our people on the roads.”
