Johannesburg - Traffic will be diverted around the FNB stadium on Sunday ahead of the Justin Bieber concert, Johannesburg metro police said.

Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said that by midday the Soweto highway would be completely closed off.

"Sixty percent of fans are likely to be minors so we are asking parents to use drop-off zones on Landbou Road."

Parents could also use the Rand Show Road as an entry point.

Fans were encouraged to use the park and ride facilities in order to alleviate traffic congestion.

Minnaar said park and ride areas were from the Emerald Casino, Silverstar Casino, Menlyn shopping mall, North Gate Mall and the East Rand Mall.

Minaar said all barricades would be lifted at midnight.
