SA Roadlink prepared for the festive season
SA Roadlink has put specific safety measures in place and is confident that its passengers will experience hassle-free journeys during the festive season.
The entire fleet of coaches will be utilised during this period and additional qualified drivers have been employed. All drivers will undergo briefing sessions and breathalyser tests before embarking on their journey. On long haul routes two drivers are deployed per bus and each will have a maximum of four hours behind the wheel.
Each and every coach will undergo a stringent before and after trip inspection to ensure the coaches are roadworthy and most of all, safe for passengers. Prior to the festive season all SA Roadlink coaches are being subjected to roadworthy tests.
The SA Roadlink coaches are equipped with a 24-hour tracking system to enable monitoring of vehicles. Four road inspectors have been deployed who will be available to assist in the event of a mechanical breakdown. SA Roadlink has developed a network of suppliers in each town en route to Durban and Cape Town to assist if the need arises.
“We are committed to the safety of our passengers and Roadlink has gone to tremendous measures to ensure that we offer our passengers a safe and affordable method to spend the festive season with their loved ones,” says Joe Mushwana, chief operating officer from SA Roadlink.
