Morning All,

We are towing from Benoni to Hluhlwe on the 27th.

I'm just wondering which is the easiest / safest:

N12 to Middelburg, Hendrina, Ermelo, or,

N17 through Leandra, Bethal to Ermelo.

From memory, the N17 was not the best surface, a bit narrow here & there and plenty big trucks. Although maybe not so many trucks at that time of year.

Any advice?

Thanks.

N17  toll road by passes leandra and trichard and goes straight to bethal then to ermelo, its a good road , the route is much better then the middleburg route. ermelo to piet retief is ok to good, piet retief to pongola , the first 30kms is very bumpy there after its good through to hluhlwe. i stay in a place called iswepe, inbetween ermelo and piet retief,

two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Thanks George, It has been many years since I went that route. Then it was through Trichards town.

It also appears to be about 27 odd k's shorter and this is quite significant  at 4.5 km/lt! :-)
