- The disastrous state of a public road was a huge talking point via social media recently
- Images of the Limpopo road stunned social media users
- The road is littered with gaping potholes as far as the eye can see
There's no doubt that the standard of roads in South Africa could be much better.
In the larger cities and metros, the roads look good for the most part, but there are many areas where motorists are placed at risk.
The state of a public road in Limpopo was debated via social media after two images went viral.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela called out Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula over the state of some of our roads.
Twitter user Man’s NOT Barry Roux (@AdvoBarryRoux) shared the photos on Friday and the post immediately started trending.
In the images, potholes dominate the dilapidated road and it's hard to imagine motorists having to navigate the minefield.
The tweet incurred the wrath of many South Africans, who were quick to share some of their own hair-raising experiences.
Princess Coetzee (@nokylicious) offered a basic solution:
"Gravel is much better than this."
Oratile Mata (@OratileMata) had a terrible experience on this very road:
"I travelled there during December....I regretted using the f@#^$%Ken road."
YT: Xukununu_Bold (@xukununu) added,
"Every time I think of this road, I get lazy to go home. Worst road ever."
Muwanwa Vele (@Von_Tastic) revealed the price he paid when travelling along the infamous road:
"Thank you for highlighting this Road. My rims have been damaged due to this road."
