Protest closes Cape highway
Cape Town - A section of the N2 highway in Cape Town was closed on Monday morning because of a service delivery protest, Western Cape police said.
Captain Frederick van Wyk said a group of people blockaded the highway with burning tyres and toilet pots near Airport Approach road from 4.20am.
“At this stage, both lanes on the N2 are closed and traffic is being diverted to alternative routes,” he said.
Police were monitoring the situation and no arrests had been made. - Sapa
