#BusStrike causes traffic frenzy in Durban[PICS]

Published Feb 1, 2016


Durban - Early morning traffic came to a standstill on Monday as bus drivers embarked on a strike, blocking traffic on Durban's main highways, as a result of a salary dispute.

Tansnat Africa CC, the company running the city's buses, posted a notice at bus depots, dated January 30, stating that bus drivers would be paid on Monday (February 1, 2016) but drivers have not been paid as yet.

This is the second consecutive month that bus drivers have not been paid timeously. Durban Transport buses were driven to key intersections where they were parked to obstruct traffic.

According to reports, the N2 Northbound was blocked by buses near the point where the M4 highway heads into the City centre. There were also reports that buses were parked and blocking an intersection on the Mangosuthu Highway, disrupting traffic leaving Umlazi.

The N2 and M4 have since been opened.
