Durban - The N2 in the vicinity of Mandini on the KZN North Coast has been closed to traffic after protestors erected burning barricades on Tuesday morning.

Road Traffic Inspectorate spokesperson Zinhle Mngomezulu said that the freeway had been closed in both directions.

She described the incident as a “public protest”.

“They have closed the road and they are burning tyres. That is all we know at this point.”

This is a developing story.
