    Default Lydenburg-to-Loskop road condition? (R577-R555-R33)

    Anyone been on these roads recently?
    What is the condition like? (wrt potholes etc).

    Lydenburg-Stofberg?
    Stofberg - Loskop?


    Are they driveable or should i consider a detour via the N4(Belfast) or even Dulstroom ?

    All I can tell you is that I drove part of the Sabie-Lydenburg road a few times this month (turned off to Nelspruit) and the section I drove was pretty decent. Can't vouch for the rest of it...

    Lydenburg to Stoffberg is pretty decent. Very scenic route and great views of the escarpment. Couple of potholes but nothing too horrible.

    Stoffberg to Loskop I have not driven in about 6 years, last time there were some bad sections...

    Cannot comment on the whole road, but from the turn-off onto the Middelburg to Loskop road, there are stop-go's in operation at the moment. Waiting times vary between 10min to over 30min at times and you still get idjits ignoring the stop-go's from the opposite side and approach you from the front when it's your turn to go, so be on the lookout for oncoming vehicles. The first stop-go you should encounter is by the Kranspoort resort/estate entrance and it continues all the way up to Loskop's entrance. They are busy redoing the whole road from Middelburg to Groblersdal.

    Update:
    Lydenburg to Stoffberg is driveable, some potholes, not too many - but generally not a very nice road to drive.
    Lydenburg - Dullstroom is definitely a better road.

    I just drove witbank middelburg to Loskop. Then the dirt road to stofberg . The tar section before the dirt was worse than the dirt road.

    That Loskop-Stoffberg dirt road is amazing, one of the better ones I have driven recently (a week ago), no surprises, so could enjoy the awesome scenery!
