“The closure is as a result of an accident involving two trucks with one carrying paraffin. There is currently a huge congestion in all routes between Pietermaritzburg and Durban.

“The congestion has now spilt over to alternative routes such as the R103 and R603,” said KwaZulu-Natal transport departmental spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane.

He stated that the crew was carrying out a mop-up procedure, which is expected to take hours.

“Motorists are urged to use alternative routes such as the R103 and R603; however they are cautioned of heavy congestion on those roads due to road works.”
