Route to Trading Post during roadworks in Magalies.

For the last 2 weeks traffic in Magaliesburg has been worse than Malibongwe Road without robots. They are busy upgrading the road through town and work on a stop and go system. They say at least 2 weeks more, to me it feels like it is going to take forever to finish that portion. Sometimes there is more than 40 min delay.
BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS there is an alternative road to reach Trading Post Coffee Shop. If you come from Krugersdorp avoid going through Orient rather take the Krugersdorp Hekpoort Road past the old Zenex.Coming from Johannesburg do not turn off at Maropeng but continue straight to Hekpoort. At the first Hekpoort Road turn left. At the T Junction turn left again. A kilometer or 2 later the Trading Post will be on your right. It is a bit further but on the positive side it is a lovely scenic route.

Please drive safely
