Mountain Passes South Africa (MPSA) inherited 54 tourism signs from the now defunct Cape Mountain Passes. We are doing our best to keep the signs neat and tidy. Some of the boards are however, beyond redemption and need to be replaced.
The cost is beyond our means. The only way we can maintain this very worthwhile project is by running a crowd funding project.
The first sign on our list is the total replacement of the sign at Dolphin Point on the Kaaimans River Pass between George and Wilderness. An inebriated motorist racing through the pass from the Wilderness side, went straight through our signboard as well as the concrete barriers and both ended up on the railway tracks below. Both the sign and the vehicle were totally written off, but the driver was fine.
This is an important board and serves many local and international tourists with useful information.
The cost of replacing this particular sign includes new support poles and is above average. Our target goal for this first project is R20,000 of which a local supporter has already donated R 10,000.
Any business that donates will receive free publicity via our social media platforms. Our Facebook page alone generates 26 million post views per month.
