Durban protest causes traffic chaos
A service delivery protest on the M19 going into Durban is causing severe traffic delays, a metro police official said on Monday.
The M19 has been closed between Roger Sishi Road in Westville and Reservoir Hills and the new Umgeni Road interchange.
Metro police spokesperson Sibonela Mchunu advised motorists travelling from Pinetown and New Germany to use the N3 instead.
Mchunu said the protest was ongoing and that no injuries had been reported.
“Metro officials are on scene monitoring the situation and attempting to move the debris from the road.”
