This coming Monday is going to be a festive one in Cape Town with the Springboks en-route to tour the Mother City with the Web Ellis trophy in-hand.

Rugby fans are eagerly awaiting their arrival. Their tour kicks off at 10.30am on Monday, November, 11. Starting point for the day is City Hall at Grand Parade.

Road closures for the day will make driving through the streets in an open-top bus easier for the Springboks but may also complicate the morning commute for many locals.

Closures for the tour may come into effect from as early as Sunday, November 10, 2019.

According to the City of Cape Town, the following roads will be closed:

– Darling Street between Parade and Corporation Streets on Sunday, November 10 from 5pm.

– On Monday, November 11 2019 from 8am to 3pm, Darling Street between Buitenkant and Lower Plein Streets will also be closed.
