fyi: Sani pass to be tarred
Johannesburg - The notorious Sani mountain pass between South Africa and Lesotho - one of the highest in southern Africa - will be tarred by 2009, The Witness reported on Friday.
Its website said a public meeting at Sani Pass Hotel was informed of the plans on Thursday.
The project to resurface and re-align the access road and the pass would begin this year at an estimated cost of R160m.
At present, the pass is only accessible to 4x4 vehicles.
Money for phase one, a 14km stretch from the turn-off near Himeville to the former Good Hope trading station, would come from the provincial and the national road departments. Phase two would extend over 11km, from Good Hope to the existing border post, while the final phase would see the tarring of the eight-kilometre pass to the summit.
