City tows obstructing buses to clear routes

EThekwini Municipality is working with city bus operator, Tansnat, to remove Municipal buses parked across busy thoroughfares around the City.

Bus drivers parked the buses this morning after leaving the depot. It is believed the reason may be linked to the national mass action taking place today.

The affected roads include Umgeni Road, M4 North and South and the N2 near Spaghetti Junction. In a media statement this afternoon, the municipality said City officials and the bus operator were working to move the buses as quickly as possible as well as to identify the culprits and take the necessary disciplinary action.

Metro Police and City Fleet are currently towing the buses to the depot. The M4 North has since been reopened.

Motorists are advised to use alternative routes while these buses are being towed away from blockaded roads.
