DE DOORNS - The N1 highway outside De Doorns in Worcestor has now been closed for almost a month.

The road was closed when it was badly damaged by striking farm workers.

Traffic in the area is still being redirected.

Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa said, "The alternative route is through the town in De Doorns.

"Sometimes the town's roads were closed and then motorists can make use of the route through Ceres/Wolseley."
