Johannesburg - More motorists joined Cosatu's anti-toll "drive-slow" protest on the N3 east of Johannesburg late on Thursday afternoon.

Only one lane on the N3 to Katlehong, before the N12, was opened to motorists after 17:15.

Traffic was moving slowly as more cars joined the group on their journey.

Motorists on the opposite side of the highway slowed down to see the group and hooted.

Part of the protest was a truck blasting music while people danced on the back. People danced from the open doors of minibus taxis as they moved along the N3 at 20km/h.

On the N1 south traffic was moving smoothly as the other group of protesters returned to the Johannesburg CBD, travelling at the same speed.

The Congress of SA Trade Unions-led protest was to show opposition to the government's plans to toll major highways around Johannesburg and Pretoria.
