The (RA) has noted with great concern the placement of advertisements within proclaimed road reserves without the necessary approvals. In some instances, advertisements are placed on road traffic signs, a practice that may lead to traffic accidents.
Placement of any advertisements or posters on proclaimed road reserves is prohibited in terms of the Roads Ordinance 17 of 1972, which states that:

• No person shall infringe any proclaimed road by erecting or introducing any advertisement.
• No person shall erect or introduce anything whatsoever within the road reserve of a proclaimed road.

Thus, the public is hereby urged to refrain from such practices. Additionally, in terms of the Advertising on Roads and Ribbon Development Ordinance 30 of 1960, all requests for infringing on the road reserve shall be made to the RA for consideration and approval. In terms of the same legislation, the public is also hereby informed that the RA reserves the right to grant and or deny such permission.

Lastly, the public is requested to contact the RA on to apply for permission to advertise or place signage along proclaimed national roads.
