#CosatuMarch – Road Closures In Cape Town, Jozi, Durban, Bloem And More

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

You might not be getting the day off work this time around, but hats off to Cosatu for seeing the light and deciding that they have had enough of Jacob Zuma.

Today’s marches will see major traffic delays and road closures right around the country, with events kicking off at 10AM at each of the respective locations.

Let’s get stuck into each location and the road closures via News24:

Johannesburg

The roads around Cosatu House in Braamfontein are the only roads which would be permanently closed as marchers are set to gather at 10:00, Mamonyane said.

From there marchers would move up Rissik Street towards City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba’s office, then through Simmonds Street to hand over a second memorandum at Bank City. ..

[Johannesburg Metro Police spokesperson Edna Mamonyane] said the marchers will go up Pixley Ka Sema Street; turn right into Albertina Sisulu Street and head up to Beyers Naude Square where the protesters are set to disperse.

She said no other roads would be permanently closed but in some cases, certain lanes would be closed to allow traffic through while marchers were on the move.

Cape Town

The City of Cape Town approved a march for about 10 000 people down Darling Street.

The marchers are set to turn right into Buitenkant Street before turning into the station side of Strand Street, between Adderley and Buitenkant street…

From there, marchers will head back through Wale street into Adderley, before taking right turns into Spin and Bureau street as well as Plein street, heading towards national parliament.

The marchers will then take Roeland Street into Buitekant street, before taking a left into Darling street, ending back at Keizergracht Street where they are expected to disperse by 15:00.

No road closures are planned.

Good luck shooting around for those CBD meetings, folks. Maybe swing by Café du Cap and call that home base for the day.

Bloemfontein

Marchers are set to gather at the Batho Community Hall and march to Provincial Government (Lebogang Building) to handover a memorandum to the Premier.

East London 

In East London, marchers will gather at the North End Stadium and march to City Hall where a memorandum will be handed over.

I don’t know how many of our readers are based in Nelspruit or Polokwane, but you can find those road closure details HERE.

Remember, whilst you’re moaning about the traffic, today’s protesters want the same thing you want – to see the back of Jacob Zuma.

Hear hear.
