Sani Pass is the only road linking KwaZulu-Natal to Lesotho. Over the years the pass had, however, deteriorated to such a degree that it was no longer safe for public use. Serious concern existed that sections of the road could be permanently lost due to catastrophic damage by heavy rains. The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Roads hence appointed Royal HaskoningDHV to undertake emergency construction measures. The emergency repairs were carried out on the switchback section between km 32.000 and km 32.437 on Main Road P318 between Himeville in KwaZulu-Natal and Mokhotlong in Lesotho.
