Metro Police say bus drivers working for Durban Transport downed keys on Monday morning and parked their vehicles on multiple routes - cutting off access to these areas. 

These are the protest hotspots you've been asked to avoid:

  • The Kwa-Mashu M25 exit via the N2 north
  • Spaghetti Junction on the N2 south 
  • The Umgeni Road onramp from the N2 south's affected - along with the M19. 

Durban Metro Police spokesperson, Parboo Sewpersad says the demonstrations have had a ripple effect on the movement of vehicles across Durban. 

He says the protesters have also made their way to Queen Nandi Drive, north of the city. 

"I can confirm that the N2, M25, Queen Nandi Drive has been blocked off by busses, this is due to protests by bus drivers. 

"However, the police are in attendance and are trying to clear up the blockages.

"Motorists are urged to use alternate routes. Do not use the N2 between Queen Nandi Drive and the M25 KwaMashu off-ramp. Use the M4 or the R102."
