Tanker Drivers Strike :- Fuel Deliveries

Post Posted: Thu Aug 08, 2019 1:02 pm

On 12th August they will be going on a indefinite "Strike"
This morning it took a 20 min wait just to get to the pumps, even though there are measures in place to try to alleviate Fuel Shortages , don't count on them working.
So fill up ASAP & Good Luck !

From midnight Sunday there will be a limit of 15 litres per visit and only from a limited number of petrol stations.

The list of those with fuel can be found here:

Strike Suspended

Post Posted: Fri Aug 16, 2019 3:56 pm

The tanker drivers strike has been suspended pending talks between the union and the government.

We're not out of the woods yet, but support amongst the drivers has been crumbling for a couple of days now so let's hope this is the end of it.

One thing forgotten, is not only do they deliver Fuel ,but also The Bottled Gas
It seems in some areas this is now in short supply.
