Any chance for the public to appeal this particular decision, It would be really sad to see quite possibly one of
the most beautifull spots in the park get closed down.
I certainly hope that SANparks starts opening up roads to some of the natural pans and dams that are out there to make up for reducing so many "pull off" type areas, where you can stop and relax.

Thanks for the updates Elsa.

Agreed :thumbs_up:

Some of the dams and waterholes that have been closed are on roads that will almost certainly be unproductive.
Give us some new ones please. Also the natural pans (like Leeupan) etc attract birds.

Any further news on the future of the S33 (Vutomi Road)?

I passed the turn-off from the H1-3 on Saturday 23 March and noticed that the road is totally overgrown with natural vegetation - giving the impression it was a road.

We have sent a reminder to Lesego. :thumbs_up:
I also noticed how overgrown the road had become when we passed it in Feb.

Will the S33 reopen without the dam? Pictures from this road look amazing!

Does Anyone have an idea when this road is being reopened, as well as the S34?

Afraid no further official notification on when those roads will be reopened.

Jip. Over a year. The road was closed after the floods last year when Vutomi Dam burst through the wall, and has not been opened since. I have driven past it a few times, and it's quite scary how the bush has taken over the road.

Why not make it another 4X4 only route?

It they were going to close the road permanently, you would have thought they would have said so by now?

Drove past the road today and can confirm it looks as if it's about to reopen as there was a grader parked there and the road itself was newly done and looking good.
