Port authorities meet over Durban Harbour blockade

Port authorities meet over Durban Harbour blockade

Management at Transnet Port Terminals and truckers are locked in meetings, following a truck protest at the Durban Port this morning.

Roads near Durban proclosed

Several truck drivers and operators used their vehicles to block parts of Bayhead and Langeberg roads - restricting access into and out of the Durban Container Terminal. 

They say they experience regular delays at the terminal. 

Transnet says while waterside operations have not been affected - the blockade could affect the receiving of export containers - which could have a knock-on effect on other operations.
