Safe Sani Pass claim under scrutiny

2008-04-30 00:00

A ROADS superintendent’s contention that the Sani Pass road — the scene of a horrific accident that left an Australian tourist a paraplegic — was safe and reasonable were challenged in the Pietermaritzburg High Court yesterday.

At the time of the accident he did not believe the road was in need of urgent re-gravelling, but regional director Wally Bennett had said that money to maintain the section between the Sani Pass Hotel and the Lesotho border should be diverted to the Himeville-Sani Pass Hotel section a few days before the accident. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
