Rus de Winter

Well did the 342km ride. I rode through Rus de Winter village. It has passed its hay day. The irrigation ditches and canals are in disrepair. Trading store empty and vandalized. Post office has grass growing out of it. However it looks like the government has big plans for it. They are on the go building big roads around it to the local villages. Fencing along the roads. Looks like it is the next residential village to be built for people to commute to Pretoria for work. Seems to me the days of irrigation are coming to an end here.

Will the stop functioning if it becomes a town?
