On Sunday the 27 April a “National Freedom Day” celebration will be hosted by the National Department of Sports and Culture at Turfhall Stadium in Cape Town.
“Motorists should note that Jan Smuts Drive between Turfhall Road and Lawson Road will be closed to traffic from 8am until 8pm and all side streets in the area of the stadium from 6am until 8pm on Freedom Day,” says Traffic Service’s Merle Lourens.
Lourens adds that alternative routes motorists can use is “from Kromboom Road just before they get to Lawson Road and for the Turfhall Road area- people can use the route from the Lansdowne bridge, motorists can come from that side”.
She urges motorists to be patient because there will be busses dropping people off and approximately 11 000 children are being expected where they will be celebrating the freedom of the youth of South Africa.
