Durban lots of action this weekend

2013-05-25 00:00

GET to the venue early. That’s the advice from eThekwini Municipality as it gets ready to host thousands of people coming to Durban for a busy weekend.

The biggest events today are the SuperSport United vs Kaizer Chiefs match at Moses Mabhida Stadium and the Sharks and Bulls clash at King’s Park Stadium.

Tomorrow, the Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk takes place on the promenade, starting from uShaka Marine World.

With these events happening in the same vicinity, heavy traffic can be expected. People going to see either of today’s matches are encouraged to arrive early to ensure they get to the stadiums on time.

Today Isaiah Ntshangase (Walter Gilbert) Road will be closed from Umngeni Road to Masabalala Yengwa (NMR) Avenue from 6 am to 6 pm. Only authorised vehicles will be allowed to enter the precinct.

Masabalala Yengwa Avenue will be closed between Sandile Thusi (Argyle) and Isaiah Ntshangase roads for about 30 minutes after the soccer match finishes.

For fans driving to the matches, parking will be provided at the Growth Point King’s Park Stadium, Mustering Fields, Natal Command Site and Drive-Inn Site.

Tomorrow Masabalala Yengwa Avenue will be closed between Smiso Nkwanyana (Goble) and Sandile Thusi roads from 5 am to 12.30 pm. Other road closures will be at Athlone Drive between Masabalala Yengwa Avenue and Snell Parade, M4 (north- and southbound) offramp to Athlone Drive, M4 (north- and southbound) onramp to Riverside Road for the Big Walk.

Motorists going to the Big Walk can make use of parking designated with signage. Alternatively they can park at uShaka and catch a shuttle bus.

Traffic police have warned they will not tolerate illegal parking, and law enforcement agencies will be out in force to guarantee everyone is safe and has a hassle-free time.
