GEORGE NEWS - The task team that has been established to secure and look at options to address issues pertaining to the Voëlklip road, has asked Province that the road be temporarily closed for traffic until it can be secured.
According to Ken Field of the Herold’s Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association, who is also part of the task team, they are awaiting feedback from Province.
This comes after yet another vehicle, the second within a month, has crashed down the cliff at a viewpoint about 1km from Voëlklip, called Hansie se Bank.
In the meantime big boulders have been placed on the open “parking area” at the scene to deter people from driving there.
The latest incident was on Saturday 20 February when two 75-year-old women from the Krugersdorp area in Gauteng, who booked into a guest house in Herold’s Bay on 17 February, died at the same spot where Heidi Scheepers and her children went over in 2019 and a mother and her daughter from George lost their lives in January this year.
