Johannesburg - Motorcyclists protesting e-tolls in Gauteng are expected to cause traffic disruptions on Saturday by riding on highways ear-marked for the project, Johannesburg metro police said.

“Traffic will be disrupted on Johannesburg freeways today (Saturday) as a group of motorcyclists will be driving in convoy in protest of e-tolls,” said Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.

“The group will gather at around 10am at the BP filling station on Beyers Naude and (the) N1 on and off-ramps.”

The convoy would then drive down the N1, N12, N3, back onto the N1 and finally return to the BP filling station to disperse.

Metro police officers would be on duty to monitor the procession. - Sapa
