The Northern Cape Department of Roads and Public Works says the road heading to the massive sinkhole located on the R31 between Kuruman and Daniëlskuil remains closed for the public.

Spokesperson for the department, Crystal Robertson, says geologists started with evaluation and drilling this week to determine the cause of the sinkhole after it formed about two week ago after heavy rains in the area.

She says they cannot say when the road will be reopened and urged the public to still detour via Postmasburg. Robertson added that the recent rain in the area caused no further damage at the site.

She says they will keep the public informed regarding the latest developments.
