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?

The pass is still all dirt and gravel but it becomes tar from the Lesotho border post at the top. Quite an impressive tar road actually. Was there in June and there was absolutely no sign of construction on the SA side.

Seems prophetic.
