Scholar transport operators block Eastern Cape roads
Eastern Cape, 23 March 2023: The South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL) would like to notify motorists that several roads in parts of the Eastern Cape have been closed by protesting transport operators.
The protesting scholar transport operators say they have not been paid for transport services by the provincial government.
“The drivers have blocked national and provincial rods. These include the N2 towards Mount Frere, another section of the N2 between eMaxesibeni (formerly Mount Ayliff) and Kokstad, the R61 between Cofimvaba and Komani (formerly Queenstown), as well as the R56 near Mount Fletcher.
“It is unclear when the roads will be reopened,” said Mbulelo Peterson, SANRAL Southern Regional Manager.
