Commuters in Kwazulu-Natal have been facing traffic difficulties due to the situation along the N11 road in Amajuba Pass in Charlestown after an irate mob set six trucks on fire on Monday.
Though traffic was now moving in the area, the public was urged to take alternate routes, according to Road Traffic Inspectorate spokesperson Sindi Msimang, who spoke with News24.
There have been spills as a result of the trucks being set on fire. Although the road is hazardous, our teams on the ground have implemented a stop-and-go system,” she stated.
According to her, the demonstrations started late on Sunday night and went on until the wee hours of Monday.
“We do not have an idea why they are protesting. There are… clean-up teams in the area who are working to improve the condition of the road. Motorists are advised to use alternative routes,” Msimang said.
