Envirosure Underwriting Managers wish to inform their clients and the general public about an area of concern on the N11 near Kranspoort.

There have been a multitude of claims in this area, predominantly as a result of brake failure/seizing and overturning on the sharp bends. This stretch of road has been flagged as our highest claim frequency area this year, and as our transporters’ safety is paramount, we would like to create awareness. A number of drivers have been fatally injured on this treacherous pass. This area has very limited cellphone reception leading to delays in emergency services responding.

The area is extremely ecologically sensitive due to its close proximity to the Loskop Dam with multiple streams and rivers feeding into the dam. For this year, Envirosure is holding claim estimates of nearly R6 million for this precarious pass.

As part of Envirosure’s proactive risk management approach, please let us know if you travel this route.

Kind regards,

The Envirosure Team
