Motorists are urged to take note of the following street closures in the CBD and to use alternative routes.


The planned refurbishment of Church Square is expected to start on Monday, says the Tshwane metro.

The refurbishment will result in road closures for motorists and pedestrians.

Some parking bays in parts of the square will also be removed.

Construction work is estimated to take nine months to complete.

Motorists are advised to use the following alternative routes during construction:

From the north going south:

Motorists can turn left onto Boom Street, turn right into Thabo Sehume Street and then turn right onto Pretorius Street to access Paul Kruger Street.

From the south going north:

Motorists can turn left from Paul Kruger Street onto Pretorius Street, then right onto Bosman Street and continue all the way to Boom Street.

Motorists can turn right onto Boom Street, and then turn left onto Paul Kruger Street to exit the inner city.

When renovation work is complete, a section of Paul Kruger Street situated around the inner parameters of Church Square will no longer be accessible to motorists.

This road will only be designated for use by A Re Yeng buses and emergency vehicles.

This will allow pedestrians to use the broad walkways.

Motorists have been asked to note that all parking bays at Church Square will be removed.

Drivers will therefore have to make use of parking decks available around the square.

A limited number of parking bays will remain on the peripheral area of the square, on Mutual and Parliament streets.

Once construction is complete, the square will have a different look with trees, a revamped lawn and street furniture combining with modern landscaping.

This redesigning will contribute to the cleanliness and the rejuvenation of the city centre.
