As a result, all traffic is being diverted onto the N11.
A traffic alert received this morning by the N3 Toll Route said: “All services please beware and also monitor for secondary blockades.”
The alert mentioned that “Van Reenen is currently being obstructed by truckers.
“All lanes are closed to traffic.”
It added that “an extensive backlog of traffic is already being reported in the area, and as a result, the Tugela Toll Plaza is now also closed in a northbound direction towards Gauteng.”
Law enforcement is on scene to monitor the situation.
