We just came back from Clarens this last weekend. Down route i went trough Oranjeville over the steel bridge, but i knew what to expect there as that road after the bridge has not been completed as it also suffers from the new SA tar road disease where after the 3rd contractor runs away with the money the tar road is no more  :dousing:
So knew we just had to get to the Villiers Frankfort road and then all is ok. . .  Yeah little did we know that the Frankfort Rietz road has also succumb to the new disease. . .  :dousing:   From Reitz to Bethlehem is all good, but in Bethlehem came across a very strange new crime where they seem to be stealing the tar at the robots. . .What is up with that Petri  :lol8:
Back on Sunday off course took the Warden route to the N3 but musy say that the 1st piece from Bethelehem towards Warden  is also on its last legs. . .
Soon in Clarens there will only be KTM,s and 4X4,s . . .
When u are on tar u are lost  !

We noticed that as well regarding the tar at the traffic lights.. WTF
