R162 development put on hold after objections by environmentalists
PLANS to build a cableway and hotels on top of the Drakensberg have stalled because environmental groups have protested against the development.
Progress on the R162-million development came to a halt this week as authorities battled with environmentalists. If passed, the proposed development by a Free State-based company, Idwala Projects would feature:
– Hotels and restaurants on top of the Drakensberg, near the Sentinel on the Free State side;
– A 2.7km-long cableway and 40 cottages in the north near the Sentinel, one of the two mountain peaks flanking the Amphitheatre rockface.
