Police officers had to stop the traffic on Bunyan and Tom Jones roads in Benoni as well as N12 on- and off-ramps after a collapse of nearby dam walls.

At Christmas residents warned the government about several cracks at the structure’s surface, and then engineers have taken measures to prevent further destruction in the area.

Now they’re waiting the water levels to be reduced to a «satisfactory level», the authorities said on Thursday. Then specialists can commence with the rehabilitation of the damaged concrete slabs. The roads were closed to allow for the pumping that is taking place in the Middle Lake.
