Media Release: R536 to Kruger and Phabeni gates reopened
18 March 2012
The R536 between Hazyview and the Paul Kruger and Phabeni gates has been reopened following the service delivery protests on Sunday, 18 March 2012. The road was reopened at 17:50 p.m. on Sunday and protesters agreed to a seven day period of no demonstrations to enable discussions to take place. No further disruptions are therefore anticipated before next Sunday, 25 March 2012.
SAPS Mpumalanga yesterday advised motorists not to make use of the R536 as service delivery protesters were burning tyres, road signs, etc. stretching over a kilometre section of the road, close to the Tshabalala turn off. SANParks advised visitors to rather make use of the R538 to Numbi gate to access the Kruger National Park.
