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.

That is good news. I think there is no other road closed longer than this one.

Great news indeed, thanks Elsa. When staying at Satara for a longer period we usually add this road as a option to our morning drive. Had great sightings on it as well.

The S34 was due to be opened last month wasn't it? I hope they get the S33 done sooner than is planned!

As of Wednesday, still closed... :evil:
Spent 8 days in the area, the other roads are shocking at the moment.
