#BieberFever: Road closures

Published May 16, 2017


Cape Town – Don't get caught in the Justin Bieber traffic on Wednesday.

Here's a handy list of road closures you should familiarise yourself with before heading to Cape Town's CBD for the concert at Cape Town Stadium.

While the Biebs is only expected on stage from about 8.30pm, gates open at 4pm with the supporting acts kicking things off at around 7.30pm.

The City of Cape Town said: "Residents and motorists are advised to please take note of the temporary road closures and to plan their trips accordingly.

"In addition, a free shuttle service will operate between the MyCiTi Civic Station and the Stadium Station. The first shuttle will depart at 16:00 and thereafter a bus will depart every 15 minutes or when full. The shuttle service will continue for the duration of the event and the last bus will depart from the Stadium Station at 00:15.

"The shuttle service will be free on presentation of a valid event ticket.

"Concert goers are also urged to make use of the on-street parking in the CBD, which will be free from 17:00 onwards, or the off-street parking in and around the city centre and either hop on the free shuttle service or use the fan-walk. This will help to reduce the congestion in the Stadium Precinct."
