Rusty road signs

I encountered this rusty old road sign on the dirt road just over the Zuurberg north of Port Elizabeth. It stands on an intersection on the R400 / R335 dirt roads and directs you to Port Elizabeth via the old Zuurberg Pass which used to be the main road between Port Elizabeth and the interior or via the N10 over the Olifantskop Pass.

  1. i think we went on that road once - to Somerset East. My dad always liked to take the road less travelled - which was exciting but often the Looooong way round.

  2. Looks like you could anywhere from this junction. I like the rusty sign and backroad travels.

  3. When do you think these road signs last saw any maintenance?

  4. Wow. It's quite interesting how some transpiration departments forget to replace road signs that have been around for over a decade. Road signs are very vital in keeping the area safe for drivers and the people living around the place. Anyway, good photo you got there.
