Good news – especially for cyclists and pedestrians

KOSRA wrote to the consulting engineer employed by the Eastern Cape Provincial Roads Department, expressing concern about the bush and grass encroaching on the roadway on the R343 between Kenton and Salem. We have received a prompt response and the engineer has commenced grass and bush trimming.

This should enhance the safety of people walking along the side of the road, as well as cyclists, and make your trip to Grahamstown more pleasant and safer.

KOSRA working for you.


  1. Thank you, the grass cutting is much appreciated.
    Please ask the contractor (engineer) to cut back the many thorn bushes which have encroached into the road. The area from Stanley’s up to Belton is particularly problematic. This may still be on their “to do” list.

    • We expressly asked them to cut the bush as well as the grass, and they have agreed to do so.

  2. This is wonderful news .. look forward to seeing the improvement …

  3. Cutting has been done very efficiently by tractor instead of by hand using the usual brush cutters. Well done. An improvement would be for the litter on the sides of the road to be cleared first so that it does not just get shredded.
