The Transport Department says 127 people have been killed on the roads so far this Easter holiday.

Department spokesperson Logan Maistry says thousands of fines have been issued for various traffic offences, with 250 people also being arrested.

Roads around the country are expected to be busy all week due to the upcoming Freedom Day and Workers Day public holidays.

Meanwhile, at least 54 people have been injured in a bus accident near Margate in KwaZulu-Natal.

Provincial Health Department spokesperson, Chris Maxon, says six of the injured suffered broken bones.

It is believed the bus was travelling along a dirt road when the driver lost control, sending the vehicle down an embankment.
