The City of Cape Town advises the public that numerous roads around the City Hall will be closed today, Wednesday 29 December, ahead of this evening’s interfaith tribute to Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.
- Parade Street from Caledon Street to Darling Street will be closed at 6am.
- A lane closure will be in place on Darling Street, between Buitenkant and Corporation streets from midday onwards.
- Darling Street will be closed between Buitenkant and Lower Plein streets at 3pm.
- Corporation Street (Longmarket to Darling Street) will also be closed at 3pm.
A large screen will be placed outside the City Hall where members of the public are welcome to join and view the service as general public access will not be possible inside the City Hall due to limited seating as a result of ongoing national COVID-19 safety protocols.
The public can access the Grand Parade from the side of the Castle of Good Hope. The City will live stream the service on its YouTube channel and share the link on its social media pages. A condolence book has been set up outside the St George’s Cathedral for members of the public to leave their messages. Condolence books will be available at all sub councils during the week. There is also an online condolence book available here.
