More Pretoria road closures for ANCYL

2011-10-27 16:21

Pretoria - More roads than initially planned would be closed in Pretoria for an ANC Youth League night vigil on Thursday and a march on Friday, Tshwane metro police said.

Pretorius Street will be closed to traffic, between Beatrix Street and Nelson Mandela Drive, from 18:00 on Thursday to 11:00 on Friday, said spokesperson Console Tleane in a statement.

"This is to ensure that there is no traffic in front of the Caledonian Stadium, where the Youth League is expected to hold its [night] vigil."

Motorists coming into the CBD via Pretorius Street would have to either turn right into Beatrix Street or turn left earlier at Hamilton Street to join other streets into the CBD.

One lane on Schoeman Street, between Nelson Mandela Drive and Beatrix Street, would be closed from 18:00 on Thursday until 10:00 on Friday.

"This is in order to allow buses carrying the marchers to drop them off," said Tleane.

On Friday, Pretorius Street would be closed between Hamilton Street and Nelson Mandela Drive from 05:00 to 10:00.

"The metro police will monitor the situation and might be flexible by opening the roads, depending on need and whether there won't be any movements at particular times," he said.
