    Default Road works in Crocodile Gorge

    Hi all,
    Does anyone have a updated on the road works from Nelspruit to Komatiepoort? Is there still a lengthy delay with the stop and go?

    Are there any detours/alternative routes?
    I will be driving to Mjejane (just past Hectorspruit) on Saturday morning from Jhb, and am not familiar with that part of the world.
    Will be driving the platkar (Rav4) so nothing too hectic.
    Thanks in advance

    Yip. Take the R40 towards Barberton and then travel via Lows Creek. You rejoin the N4 just before the Toll gate.

    Its an extra 40 odd km's I think but so much better than being stationary for up to 2 hours at times.

    I do this trip once a month so have some knowledge....

    Alternatively go via Badplaas to Barberton and then as explained by Geraas and miss the Machado toll gate.
