If they do decide to tar it, despite all protestations from eia's. Could they not use some form of course gravel impregnated into the tar surface, sought of like a course sand paper effect to help prevent vehicles skidding because of black ice.

Reading what Stefangrab wrote about the road in Lesotho where they are tarring the section between Sani Pass and Mokhotlong-I'm wondering what this section looks like at the moment. A year ago we travelled this section. I don't know a lot about road building but to me it looked as if they didn't really do a lot to stabilize the areas next to the road and the rivers downstream of the new roads were like mud. Does anybody know if they did something to stabilise the soil?

According to Mountain Backpackers on FB, Sani has been closed due to part of the road collapsing:

Anyone know the current status - I'm hoping to go up next weekend.

Also - any ideas for a less expensive way of going up? Sani Top charges R250 pp each way, I'm hoping there is a cheaper option. We currently have a team of 6. Still kind of hoping that someone with a 4X4 will join the group :laugh:

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

Whether for or against this...this is likely to be the same as both Sterkfontein Road and Sentinel Road 'upgrades'.

Going slowly at first, then going nowhere, then going backwards.

Anyone have a recent update on progress of this upgrade, maybe you were in the area?

I searched online, but cannot find updates to progress or current state of upgrade.

Did it start? How far are they if so?
