A truck carrying 20 tons of explosives - including dynamite - overturned on Cullinan Road, Tshwane emergency services said.

"It happened just after 14:00. The owner of the products and two technicians are on-site," Tshwane EMS spokesperson Johan Pieterse said.

The explosives had not gone off.

Cullinan Road was closed from the Mamelodi crossing until the scene could be cleared.

Drivers were encouraged to use alternative routes.
