Cape Town’s motorists have been warned to expect a state of stagnation as Parliament reopens in the coming week. Extended road closures can be expected between 6am and midnight on Thursday, February 7, as the President delivers the State Of The Nation Address (Sona).
“There will also be limited road closures in effect for rehearsals on Tuesday February 5 and Wednesday February 6,” the City of Cape Town warned.
The road closures will cause congestion in and around the City Bowl, as well as the city-bound lanes of the M3 and N2. Traffic in Newlands will also be affected.
“Road users are also alerted to the closure of the M3 and N2 at 5.45pm on Thursday. The M5 will be the best option as an alternative route,” the City said. “Please take note of parking restrictions in the city from midnight on Wednesday February 6 to Thursday February 7 at 11.45pm.”
