The Tongaat toll plaza has become the epicenter of chaos as protesting minibus taxis completely blockaded both sides of the crucial N2 highway.

The southbound lanes have been effectively shut down, forcing motorists to make sudden U-turns at the toll plaza in search of alternative routes.

However, the situation is even direr for northbound traffic, where vehicles are at a standstill, unable to proceed.

The protest, reportedly organized by disgruntled minibus taxi operators, has left commuters stranded and frustrated, exacerbating an already congested road network.

The reason for the protest is not known yet.

With no movement in sight and tensions running high, authorities are urging motorists to steer clear of the N2 and seek alternative routes to minimize delays and alleviate congestion at the toll plaza.

As the standoff persists, commuters are advised to stay updated on the evolving situation and plan their journeys accordingly.

The authorities are working diligently to resolve the impasse and restore normalcy to the affected routes, but until then, the Tongaat toll plaza remains a flashpoint of frustration and inconvenience for all those caught in its grip.
