Sani Pass road ‘not so bad’

2008-04-23 00:00

SOME exaggerated allegations about the Himeville-Sani Pass road — on which an Australian tourist suffered injuries that rendered him a paraplegic — have been made, regional roads department manager Wally Bennett said in the Pietermaritzburg High Court yesterday.

Advocate Jean Marais, SC, counsel for the Eastmans, said the gravel road is a well-known tourist route to a top hotel, it joins international roads, it carries heavy farming vehicles, is used by women taking children to school and is in a high rainfall area. Until the accident it was only regravelled in 2000, and since then has been only patch gravelled. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
