Protesters blocked the N2 in Cape Town on Wednesday morning, the city's law enforcement said.

Cape Town Traffic Services spokesperson Richard Coleman said the N2 was closed in both directions between Sir Lowrys Pass Road and Somerset Main Road.

“Tyres are being set alight and vehicles are being stoned. We urge motorists to avoid that route,” Coleman said.

He said the protests concerned service delivery in the area.
