The journey of 52 passengers and their driver en route to East London was cut short at 2pm this afternoon when the second SA Roadlink bus was pulled off the road in as many days.
The vehicle was stopped at a roadblock on the N2 near Neptune Road (Coega) by officials from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Traffic Law Enforcement Unit.
The vehicle has worn tyres, the indicator and headlights don’t work, the windscreen wipers are also out of order and the engine leaks oil.
When the vehicle was taken to the municipality’s roadworthy centre in Sidwell, it was also discovered that the brakes are defective.
Yesterday another bus of SA Roadlink, en route from Cape Town, was impounded with worn stabilizer bushes, non-functioning number plate and reverse lights. The stop lights also didn’t work, the engine leaked oil and the vehicle does not have a license disc and a transport permit.
Officials contacted the company to send another bus to transport the passengers to their destination and suspended the use of the defective bus and will release it on condition that the vehicle is taken to the nearest place of repair.
