An important travel advisory to all our visitors for the Sandstone Easter Steam event regarding  road conditions in the Sandstone area of the eastern Free State

We would like to advise you, that due to lack of maintenance by the Provincial Government in the Free State, that the road between Fouriesburg and Sandstone is in very poor condition with many potholes.  There are sections of it where one has to be extremely careful and go at extremely low speeds to prevent damage to your vehicle. Other roads in the area to Ficksburg and Sandstone are also in poor condition and should be driven with caution.

This is not a problem if people are aware of it in advance and of course it might add 15 minutes to your trip but we did want to ask you to be very alert and take care on your journey to the Sandstone Easter event.
