Mpumalanga: Avoid R23 Standerton / Volksrust road

April 2016

The R23 from Standerton to Volkrust has about 20km of road still under construction on the Standerton side. A number of “stop-gos” are in place, with considerably long waiting times – in our case 40 minutes :(.

I reckon construction will only complete late this year, after which it’ll be a wonderful road.
