From what I can remember the S36 has warnings up about low rainfall in the area and thus very difficult for the graders to work it. I can't remember the exact wording.
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?

As far as I know, the roads are graded after the first rains and after the last rains. They cannot continually grade the roads because they would then remove all the road surface - the dirt roads are "constructed" and not just ploughed through the veld. Continual grading will remove all the material used to construct the road.

We have just been up north (Punda Maria, Shingwedzi and Letaba camps) and were pleased and surprised to see many of the roads had recently been graded. The roads were all in fantastic condition. Even the loops on the Mphongolo road were recently graded.
