Diaz circle takes another truck

The Diaz traffic roundabout at the entrance to Walvis Bay remains a dangerous spot for trucks. This truck, carrying a consignment of breakbulk charcoal, overturned on the roundabout as it entered Walvis Bay yesterday morning.

Early morning traffic was obstructed, but traffic officers managed to maintain traffic flows as the recovery of the truck began.  Workers first had to clear the cargo from the truck. That included cleaning the road surface. Two cranes performed the work to clear the truck’s trailer and semi-trailer and by twin-lift lifted the mechanical horse upright again.
The recovery operations took three hours, between 09:00 and noon.
On the picture: the truck belongs to Boshoff Transport of Okahandja. The truck loaded a consignment of charcoal at Swakopmund. The consignment had to be delivered in the port of Walvis Bay for export.
