EFF MEMBERS assisted in diverting traffic from the R31 on Wednesday as the road is still closed.

Dikgatlong EFF councillor Lefa Leewu said they were diverting heavy-duty vehicles towards the Windsorton detour on the R374 and light motor vehicles to use the Riverton road.

Leeuw said they wanted to save lives and motor vehicles from being damaged.

Motorists indicated that what was usually a 22-kilometre trip from Windsorton to Kimberley was now a 107-kilometre detour.

“Traffic being diverted to Kimberley is also causing undue pressure on the roads and it is only a matter of time before the roads start cracking because of the extra vehicles and heavy-duty trucks that are passing through the city.”
