Cape Town – Protesters have attempted to block access to Cape Town international – but Acsa spokesperson Deirdre Davids has confirmed all is clear on the road leading to the airport.
A Tweet posted by MyAATraffic on Friday afternoon had said access in both directions on the N2 had been disrupted.
The MyCiti bus service also warned to expect delays as its A01 service to the airport was being diverted via Borchards Quarry Rd, due to possible protest action.
According to one person tweeting from the scene, the issue is allegedly between metred taxis and online taxi service Uber’s drivers, “massive situation very scary taxis hitting our car on highway coming out of Cape Town international.”
However Davids confirmed to Traveller24 there was an incident earlier on Friday morning, but an attempt to “block access to the airport was thwarted by both traffic services and the SAPS”.
