durbanTimeslive reports that disgruntled municipal employees cut off critical city waste and water services by using earthmovers to blockade roads in Springfield Park‚ Durban on Tuesday.  

The striking workers from the eThekwini Water and Sanitation (EWS) department have demanded an audience with city managers‚ although it is not clear what their concerns relate to.  They apparently used TLB’s and bulldozers to barricade Electron Road.  Bulldozers were used to shift concrete bollards and mounds of sand to block the gates to the main truck yard depot.  Articulated trucks - with tractors loaded on the back - were abandoned in the entrance and exit of the EWS office.  The protest prevented access to offices in Electron Road.
