Bloemfontein - Several roads in Bloemfontein would be closed during the ANC’s centenary celebrations this weekend, the Mangaung municipality said on Thursday.

The area surrounding the Free State Stadium would be closed from Friday to Sunday, including Kingsway , Att Horak and Betoger streets.

Mangaung spokesman Qondile Khedama said Parfitt Avenue would be fully operational, with traffic officers on standby to assist with the traffic flow.

The same would apply to Park Road and First Avenue. Khedama said the roads near Vista University, where the Presidential Gala Dinner would be held on Saturday night, would also be fully operational.

Church Street would also be open to road users, although traffic officers would be available to assist with the flow of traffic.

"There would be access control measures used at the entrance of the Vista University.”

Khedama said Bastion and Mantle streets in the former Waaihoek area, in the central business district of Bloemfontein, would be closed from Friday to Sunday.

The surrounding roads would be fully operational with traffic officers visible to assist with the flow of traffic. At the Outdoor Sports Centre in Rocklands, Phale, Mogame and Sedikelo streets would be closed from 06:00 on Saturday.
