For the second time this week, protests on the freeway feeding Cape Town International Airport have blocked traffic.
Motorists were advised to use alternative routes, although the freeway has now been reopened. Traffic volumes will, however, mean major delays for morning motorists.
Update: Road Closure on the N2 inbound before Airport Approach has been reopened, expect delays.

On Wednesday night, protests allegedly related to ANC councillor lists led to two buses being burnt on the highway. However, the ANC denied any involvement.
The party later, however, suspended its member who “instigated” the violence.
