The pass was closed on June 22 following rockfalls caused by torrential rain and gale-force winds, prompting the Stellenbosch Municipality to issue a notice that the pass would be closed indefinitely.
While the pass was opened to traffic, further repairs will continue while it is in use.
Yesterday, Transport and Public Works MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela officially reopened the pass following an intensive geotechnical assessment.
“The pass had to be closed for safety reasons after a rockfall which damaged a passing vehicle. The driver of the vehicle suffered minor injuries. Two weeks later, another rockfall occurred in the area on July 3.
