Motorists in the west of Pretoria should use alternative routes as the Daspoort tunnel was closed on Wednesday morning due to protests.

Tshwane metro police said Van der Hoff Road and Bremer Street were congested.

“Heavy delays in the Hercules area. Use alternative routes.”

According to residents of Gomorra, an informal settlement, they were demanding the release of three men after they were arrested on Tuesday for the shooting of a Tshwane metro police officer.

The officer was shot four times and is in hospital in a critical condition.
