The affected roads include Umgeni Road, M4 North and South and the N2 near Spaghetti Junction.
 
City officials and the bus operator are working to move the buses as quickly as possible as well as to identify the culprits and take the necessary disciplinary action.
 
Metro Police and City Fleet are currently towing the buses to the depot.The M4 North has since been reopened.
 
Motorists are advised to use alternative routes while these buses are being towed away from blockaded roads.
