Media statement: Madiba Drive remains closed

For Immediate Release
27 November 2021

Garden Route District Municipality (GRDM) has noted with concern that some members of the community are still accessing Madiba Drive (MR355) in George. This is of great concern because the road was closed earlier this week. Signs were placed at various entry points and adjacent to the sinkhole that cut off George from Nelson Mandela University.

Pictures below show some of the many signs placed by GRDM on the MR355.

The public is kindly reminded not to make use of the road as it remains closed. It is a high-risk road that is extremely volatile at the moment.

Those planning to travel to Nelson Mandela University should do so via Wilderness.

An article appeared on the George Herald website today about a cyclist who sustained serious injuries after falling into the huge gap left in Madiba Drive
