The Cape Winelands District and Breede Valley municipalities' fire services were deployed on the scene overnight, attempting clean-up operations.

“The gas is being pumped from the overturned tanker into a fresh tanker to be removed from the scene so that operations can continue”, said CWDM's spokesperson Jo-Anne Otto.

She noted that there were no casualties or injuries reported.

Motorists were advised to take alternative routes.
