Road closures for big week
The City of Cape Town is putting the finishing touches to its plans for Friday’s festivities. The events around the final draw at the convention centre and for the Long Street street party will mean a number of road closures before, during and after the festivities.
“To minimise traffic disruptions, Cape Town traffic services will be on duty to redirect motorists and pedestrians,” said Cape Town traffic spokeswoman Merle Lourens.
Foreshore: from 9am on Monday there will be intermittent road closures in the area of lower Long, Coen Steytler and Cullinan streets. These are likely to continue until 5am on Monday December 7.
Long Street: There will be a partial closure of Long Street from Buitensingel to Buiten Street, from 1pm on Monday to 5am next Monday. Pedestrians will have access to pavements.
Upper CBD: From 1am on Friday until noon on Saturday there will be road closures in the area bound by Queen Victoria, Green, Buitensingel, Loop and Dorp streets.
On-street stopping or parking will not be permitted in Long Street from Buitensingel to Buiten Street from 6pm on Wednesday until noon on Saturday.
