Be Aware and be Careful Be Aware and be CarefulCOSATU action to stop open road tolling in Gauteng
 
3 November 2012
The next phase of COSATU’s campaign of mass action against the e-tolling of our highways, will be a protest slow drive on the highways of Ekurhuleni on Thursday 6 December 2012.
Motorists are urged to assemble from 06h00 at the Old Trade Centre (Now Mboro Church), cnr Black Reef and Masakane Streets, near the Scaw Metal factory, Alrode. From 09h00 the convoy will join the N3 at the Heidelberg Road on-ramp, then drive North along the N3, N12, R24, and R21 to the Nelmapius off-ramp in Centurion and then back South on the R21, N12 West towards Johannesburg and back on to the N3 South before dispersing.
Please note this is an extract from an e-mail received from a Ward Councillor from the City of Johannesburg: –
All road users in Gauteng. There will be major road blockades in Gauteng’s highways set up by COSATU. This is relating to the E-Tolling system the government wants to implement. Drivers of vehicles in Gauteng are urged to make use of alternative routes due to the E-Toll strike as strikers would be blocking off the routes. The following routes will be affected from Thursday morning 6 December: N3 highway (Durban/Johannesburg),N17 highway(Johannesburg/Springs),N12 highway(Witbank/Johannesburg&Johannesburg/Kimberly).N1 from southern bypass to Pretoria,M1 Jhb/Sandton,M2 Germiston/Joburg,N14 Krugersdorp/Centurion. It’s unknown how long the action will last, motorist are advised to seek alternative means moving around. DO NOT attempt to drive through the blockades as strikers could turn violent. Please notify fellow road users.

There is unfortunately no way that we can confirm that the planned action is going to take place, we at Master Retailing would just like to ensure everybody is aware of this and that they please be careful and take care on the roads.
