City advises of road closures for State of the Nation Address and rehearsals (SONA2015)
To accommodate the State of the Nation Address (SONA2015) on Thursday 12 February 2015, the National Government has requested that the City of Cape Town effect road closures in the city, mostly in the CBD. The route has been reworked this year in order to minimise the impact on commuters.
These road closures will also be in effect on the evenings of Tuesday 10 February and Wednesday 11 February, when rehearsals for the event are held.
The road closures will affect the normal flow of traffic in and around the city bowl and road users are asked to plan their routes accordingly.
A detailed breakdown of the closures/restrictions and deviations is available here: http://www.capetown.gov.za/en/MediaReleases/Documents/SONA_Opening_Parliament_2015.pdf
Residents are advised that parking restrictions will also be in effect, and are asked to plan accordingly
