Abnormal Breakdown on the N2 – Traffic came to a standstill at peak hour in Piet Retief, on Tuesday, 23 February 2016.
An abnormal vehicle broke down on the N2 entering town from the Pongola side and blocked the movement of traffic. The vehicle broke down at the bridge and caused a traffic congestion at around 17:00. Due to the vehicle standing on the main street, motorists were stopped from travelling to and from their destinations.
The quick reaction of our local traffic officers, who assisted to control the situation, was remarkable as motorists got relieved of the wait to move to their headed destinations. Traffic was under control and the smooth movement of vehicles on the N2 was brought back to normal once again.
