“Police are advising truck drivers to use alternate routes and to totally avoid the Addo Road. Police recommend trucks coming from/going to Addo to use the turnoff at the Monument crossing towards the Coega Hotel and then join Neptune Road which will then take them towards the harbour,” said police spokesperson Col Priscilla Naidu.

“The problematic areas, are the corners of Addo and the M17 up to the cemetery,”

“Public Order Policing will be closing off the road including Ngedle Street until the situation stabilises”

“Truck drivers are warned to be vigilant and travel with caution,” said Naidu.
