The Roads Authority (RA) has reopened some roads in the south of Namibia that were damaged by the recent heavy rainfall in the Karas Region.
According to the RA, District Road 210 is now accessible and open to traffic following repair works that were completed on the Homs River Bridge in Warmbad.
The main road between Stampriet and Hoachanas (MR/C15) has also been made accessible and is open to traffic.
However, the RA cautioned road users to drive vigilantly because the repairs are ongoing. The main road from Karasburg to Aroab (M25/C11) has also been made accessible and is open to traffic, but repairs are not done yet.
Meanwhile, the main road from Keetmanshoop to Koës, also known tourist route C17, is still not accessible and remains closed to traffic.The RA said repairs are underway and that they will update the public when it is accessible, safe and open to traffic. “Road users are kindly requested to exercise extra caution and to be vigilant on their journeys, especially in areas where we have received good rain, as repairs are not completed yet.”
