As a result, he says, it is difficult for motorists to pass and the blockage is due to community protests around the Giyani area.
“The same applies to the D3840 road between Giyani and Nkomo village,” he said.
Moremi-Taueatsoala added that the department are arranging with both the Department of Public Works as well as the local municipality to assist with removing the sand.
Motorists are therefore advised to use alternative routes in the mean time.
