Johannesburg - Traffic along certain roads in Johannesburg will be diverted at the weekend because of religious events, metro police said on Friday.

"The Soweto Highway will also be closed on Saturday and Sunday from 13:00 to midnight," he said.

"Patrons to the Propak exhibition at the Expo Centre will not be affected as Nasrec Road and Rand Show Road will not be closed."

Minnaar said traffic would also be diverted around St Mary's Cathedral on Saturday, for the consecration of the Johannesburg Anglican Bishop elect.

Plein Street would be closed to traffic between Eloff and Klein Streets.
