Johannesburg – The transportation of a Boeing 737 aircraft currently underway in Johannesburg, causing major traffic delays, has left motorists and some Twitter users unimpressed.

"Why didn't they move it while we were sleeping?" @MissDivaNumber1 tweeted. Motorists have been warned to expect the slow-moving traffic to last until 17:00 on Tuesday.

Delays are expected from the East Rand in Gauteng towards Fourways, Johannesburg, as the Boeing 737 makes its way from OR Tambo International Airport to Fourways Mall.
