PIETERMARITZBURG - The N3 near Brookside Mall in Pietermaritzburg is closed due to protest action.
At this stage, the reason for the protests is not clear.
The Brookside Mall was one of the malls looted and torched during the July riots.
It is still being repaired and is expected to reopen later this year.
This is not the first protest on the N3 in that area.
Last year, truck drivers blockaded the highway venting their anger at the hiring of foreign nationals as drivers.
