Road closures

Posted on December 10th, 2013

Traffic congestion in JHB – 05/03/2014

Good morning all

Please note that the weather in JHB is still very bad and causing a lot of traffic congestion. Our drivers have been instructed to take it easy on the roads to avoid accidents. The roads are heavily congested and a high number of potholes as well as accidents have been reported. There are also reports of flooding at low lying bridges, making some roads inaccessible. We will update you during the course of the day.

Road Closure update – 12/12/2013

Please be advised that due the Nelson Mandela Memorial in Durban from 13-15 December 2013, areas around the Moses Mabida Stadium will be closed to traffic; there will be traffic restrictions on the Beachfront Promenade and certain areas within the CBD. Further, the M4 leading into the Durban CBD will be closed from a certain point.

We do envisage difficulties expediting deliveries and collection in these areas however, we will endeavour to get all collections and deliveries done timeously during this period.

Many thanks

Good day,

Please note that due to the Nelson Mandela Memorial Service currently on the go at  Soccer City, the following areas will not be visited today.

Johannesburg central and surrounding areas.
Road closures in the Pretoria CBD have also made this a no-go area and will not be serviced today.

The stadium is reportedly filling rapidly and this is going to cause traffic to spill over into the JHB CBD. Updates will be forthcoming throughout the day.

Thank you for your understanding in this regard.

CAPE TOWN ROAD CLOSURES:

Dear Valued Client

We will however endeavor to operate as normal during these road closures, but when booking collections in and around the CPT CBD, please note that deliveries and collections could be compromised.

The CPT Metro is urging all traveling into the CBD to use public transport to ease congestion.

**In addition to the delays in and around JHB due the Nelson Mandela tribute, massive delays are being experienced due to poor weather and visibility. We have instructed our drivers to exercise extreme caution and reduce speed.
