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.

 “Unfortunately, we have not established who the leadership of the group is. They have burnt tyres and trees. They have not specifically indicated what the exact service delivery issue is.”

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.”
