We also did the road on Sunday. Very nice indeed, with regular general game. \O \O \O

It is only 10km or so long, and comes out half way along the S-89 as Dzombs says.
There does need to be a sign at the exit side showing where one is.
Even some of the new maps don't have this road yet.

Perhaps something that needs to brought to the attention of SANP?
RP?

I'm pretty sure from experience the name signs will arrive at some stage, Dzombs. They get outsourced I think. ;-) \O

Let's give it a few weeks! lol
