The N3 is closed on the Durbanbound carriageway following yet another truck fire, this time involving a side tipper truck. On Sunday, a tanker truck crashed in the same place after allegedly losing brakes and it caught fire.

This Tuesday morning a side tipper truck caught fire in the middle of the road while going down the steep decline. Such incidents have been happening often ever since SANRAL started reconstruction of the slow lane.

The crashes have been blamed on truck drivers who ignore the compulsory stops ending up losing control of their trucks as they gather momentum going down the steep decline.

On Sunday, there was a total road closure of the N3 after a tanker crashed spilling oil all over the roadway.

N3 Toll Concession said stationary traffic extended far back as Cedara on the southbound carriageway, towards Durban.

Clean-up and recovery operations took about five hours causing massive congestion as trucks were stacked on the scene.
