    Default Travelling from Nelspruit to Groblersdal

    I recently (Sept 1 travelled to Groblersdal via Belfast, Stoffberg on the R33. I found the road after Stoffberg to be in an appalling condition with many pot holes in the road. Last October 17 I took the Middleburg N11 via Kranspoort on N11 past Loskop dam and there were an number of stop and go's with a lot of roadworks. Can anyone please tell me what the latest status is with the N11 road as I will not drive over R33 in a hurry. My end destination is Botswana via Mokapane (Potgietersrus) Many thanks

    Hi Danie - I looked at that route via Pietersburg and Alldays. There is very little time difference but I found going through all the old Bantustan areas a bit slow with their traffic and it is not a road to break down on at all. At present the Loskop dam Middleburg route looks the best if the roadworks are complete.Thanks

    I spoke to a SANRAL area representative and he advised me that the N11 roadworks are complete and is a much better road to travel on than R33. Only caution was driving down the Kranspoort pass. be careful of heavy vehicles etc.thanks
