New measures that will be implemented to help ease congestion and ensure those travelling to Soccer City get there on time includes the closure of certain roads around the stadium, parts of the N1 highway, Sandton and Pretoria.

Roads in Sandton will be closed from 13:00 to 17:30. Delegates from FIFA, the Organising Committee, SAFA and other dignitaries are expected to arrive at FIFA's headquarters in Sandton from 13:00 to 15:00. No parking will be allowed on the streets around FIFA's headquarters.

Johannesburg Metro Police will be onsite to remove illegally parked cars.

There will be soft closures (meaning access to the roads will be restricted and they will be re-opened once the convoys have passed) on the N1 from 14:30 to 16:30.

The N1 will be open as soon as the operation has ceased. All soft road closures will be done at the N1 on ramps. Cars will be directed to various diversion routes.

Tshwane Metro Police is expected to close all five intersections between the Irene Lodge and the N1.

There will be a number of traffic control points from Sandton to the N1 South.

In Sandton there will be soft road closures on parts of Fifth Street, Alice Lane, West Street, Maude Street, Gwen Lane and Rivonia Road.

Residents and those who need to enter these areas for business purposes will be allowed in. Those hoping to get some shopping done at Sandton City will also be allowed through.

Fans attending the game have been urged to make use of public transport and to get to the park-and-walk and park-and-ride facilities early. - BuaNews
