Durban – Operations resumed at the N3 Toll Plaza near Mooi River in KwaZulu-Natal on Monday, the N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) said.
"Almost 24 hours after protest action lead to the burning of trucks and the subsequent closure of the N3 Toll Route near Mooi River in KwaZulu-Natal, N3 Toll Concession (N3TC) can now resume operations at its Mooi Plaza in both the north- and southbound directions," spokesperson Anita Heyl said.
"Temporary repairs have been done and the diversion of traffic off the N3 Toll Route is no longer necessary. The N3 Route is now open to traffic."
The N3TC appealed to road users planning to use the N3 Toll Route to avoid travelling at night and to obtain verified real-time traffic information from the 24-hour N3 Route Helpline.
Earlier on Monday, recovery and clean-up operations were underway on the N3 stretch in the Mooi River area after 32 trucks were torched and others looted.
