We are in close contact with all relevant role players and once the situation pertaining to the existing routes are clarified, we will be in a better position to make a decision about route plans for Saturday, 27 February and Sunday, 28 February.

As part of our standard operating procedure we have alternative route plans available for consideration by the authorities.

We anticipate making a decision on the routes in consultation with all the stakeholders by 5 February 2016.

Our thoughts go out to those affected by the fires and the brave dedicated firemen, farmers and trail builders who have brought it under control.
