“At the end of 2024, CEO of Volkswagen (VW) Passenger Cars, Thomas Schaefer warned that South Africa is becoming an undesirable location for manufacturing cars – especially amid the global shift toward EVs – due to issues such as load-shedding, rising labour costs, and problems with Transnet”

The location also makes it more difficult for motorists from the R21 northbound carriageway to enter the N1 south at speed.

The closed lanes cause a deviation from a normal gradual merge over a longer distance into a sharper and shorter entry into the N1.

This is not very accurate, those R21 people have a whole lane for themselves until after the sink hole road works.

The South African Post Office (SapoMVL) is next at R147, which involves a R72 service fee and R75 delivery fee.

I am pretty sure you guys are putting in the ENATIS transaction fee into the overall price again (as has been pointed out in previous articles), everyone pays the R72, whether using FNB or whatever, please investigate and rectify.
