Cape Town Road Closures - Paliarment Opening

Parliament will officially open on Thursday, 11 February 2010 at 19:00 when President Jacob Zuma delivers the State of the Nation Address to the Joint Sitting of Parliament. Roads surrounding the Parliamentary precinct and along the route that the President is to travel will be closed. Motorists are advised to avoid these roads as well as roads leading to the processional route between 16:30 and 22:00. Road users are requested to use alternative routes (especially when going to the airport), as the road closures may lead to congestion and excessive delays. The table with all the closed roads is waaaaaaaay too long to post on here, so click here to check it out, but below is a list of the alternative routes you can use. Hope this helps somebody as I’m personally not affected at all by any of this, as I work on Bree and live in Green Point, I travel in a straight line between work & home. I might be gloating.. :P

Alternative Routes to use:

Road users are advised to use the following alternative routes into the CBD during the event:

1. M5, Black River Parkway, then onto the N1, Table Bay Boulevard.

2. M4, Main Road, onto Victoria Road up to the Good Hope Centre. Thereafter left onto Tennant Road or right onto Oswald Pirow Road to circle the outer CBD.

3. Outer CBD Circle Road – Use the following ring route to the area of the CBD you want to access: Oswald Pirow Road, Table Bay Boulevard, Buitengracht, Buitensingel Street, Orange Street, Jutland Avenue, Upper Roeland Street / Brandweer Street,Tennant Street
