Abstract

The applicant in this case had been blocked from using a road across a farm. The applicant is a quarry mining company and it was seeking an interdict to block the respondents who had constructed a boom gate to prevent the applicant from using the road. The respondents claimed that the applicant was causing severe damage to their land with his heavy machinery and trucks, therefore also asked the applicant to conduct an EIA. The interdict application was dismissed by the judge because the applicant failed to meet the requirements of the final interdict.
