Armed Forces Week:Road closures expected

2016-02-10 06:00

THE South African National Defence Force (SANDF) alerts Nelson Mandela Bay and the surrounding areas of imminent road closures and noise pollution, due to the upcoming military activities related to the Armed Forces Week and Armed Forces Day from February 13 to 21.

High volumes of noise including gun fire and manoeuvres by the SANDF during capability displays will be experienced, while military convoys will be travelling in and out of the metro.

All possible efforts will be made to reduce any negative impact on the environment. Some of these measures include:

. Extensive notices to all pet owners about the event.

. Making use of several recycling service providers to recycle the waste generated by the event.

. Making use of bio-degradable plates and cutlery for the meals.

. Ensuring that the Kings Beach area is cleaned and there are no pyrotechnics left after the events.

In all the road and street closures, there will be traffic officers and military police to supervise the flow of traffic and to conduct point duties.

The SANDF apologises for any inconvenience caused.
