Following heavy rains in the south of the country, there have been reports that the Guruchab bridge, which is about 40km from Keetmanshoop towards Grunau was damaged. Manager of Corporate Communications at the Roads Authority, Hileni Fillemon however, clarified that the Guruchab River bridge is not the one that is damaged and is open to the public. But, road shoulders close to the bridge are the ones that are extensively damaged. She said the Roads Authority has erected road signs to guide traffic away from the damaged roads. Fillemon cautioned that when motorists drive over the bridge, they have to exercise extreme caution.
