Update: Oudtshoorn and George rockfalls

GEORGE NEWS - Mr. Roy Tyndall from Kantey and Templer Engineers, earlier today said that the work on the N12 outside Oudtshoorn should be finished by the end of this month.

This follows a major rockfall at the end of July.

He added that a team of 6 absailers will start working on the Outeniqua Pass within the week: "Mesh and belting of loose rocks will be finished before the December holidays start. The plan is to have two lanes across the pass open by the first week in December. The extension of the current concrete wall will commence early next year."

The Outeniqua Pass rockfall took place in August.
