protestANA reports that more than 100 trucks blocked the N3 at Van Reenen’s Pass on Wednesday morning as local truck drivers protested against the hiring of foreign nationals.  

The N3 toll concession on Wednesday asked motorists to delay their trips or use the alternative routes, as the entire road was blocked by protest action in both directions between Harrismith and the Tugela Toll Plaza in Ladysmith.  Motorists have been advised to use R74 Bergville, the R23 and N11 routes to avoid the traffic.  The toll concession said that law enforcement and emergency services had been deployed to the area.  In April, a number of trucks were set alight at the Mooi River toll plaza in KwaZulu-Natal as local truck drivers protested against truck company owners who use foreigners as drivers.
