Hi All,

Could someone who knows this route quite well advise me as to which is best? I will be travelling from the East Rand (Benoni) to Clarens next week Thursday for the long weekend.

I know the 'original' route (getting off at villiers and then using the R26) is laden with horrible potholes and general a poor state of affairs. Thus I habe been advised to have a look at 2 other routes.

#1: Get off at Warden, make use of the R714 and then the R712
#2: Get off at Harrismith, use the R74 to R712 through Golden Gate.

Which is best or is there an even better route?
