Afraid not. Only opens when the ports open apparently . Work that one out.

A mate lives right there. In fact the road goes through his farm and he has to drive a massive loop to get across .

National road so they cannot close it for farmers farming both sides of the river. It would be very weird if it's closed.

It seems it is closed :( :(

Had it slightly wrong.
Just checked with my buddy. Will be opened when slipways are opened.

I know of a certain political party that should be slapped with a ban.

Ek het by 'n ou gehoor wat 'n huis daar het, dat die pont uitgetrek was, maar nie hoog genoeg nie, en toe die rivier afgekom het na die reŽn, die pont gefloud het, hoorsÍ
Nuwe een sekerlik nog nie in werking nie

Sal nie verbaas wees as die ou pont "per ongeluk" laat wegspoel is nie, om die "bewaringsbewustes" te ontglip en die nuwe pont te installeer.

Hopefully some good news.

Thank you for your trouble. I feel sorry for the hotel and surrounding businesses. IMHO it is still worth the trip anyway! :thumleft: :thumleft:
