World Cup road closures on Grayston Drive, Sandton

June 3, 2010
There is so many emails going around detailing road closures,

routes, transport plans etc during WC2010 that it is even more

confusing than the road closures themselves!

I just received this email explaining CLEARLY the road closures on Grayston Drive

– if this affects you, I suggest you update your playlists/cd’s in your car

cos GRIDLOCK here we come!! Remember patience is a virtue…

“We have been notified that certain roads will be closed around the

Innesfree Park Fan Fest during the FIFA Soccer World Cup.

The Fan Fest will operate every day from Thursday 10 June until Sunday 11 July 2010,

from 11h00 to 24h00.

The two extreme left hand lanes of Grayston Drive, between Katherine Street and the M1 (travelling towards the highway), will constitute a Traffic Free Zone and a Traffic Warning Zone.
The lane next to Innesfree Park will be a Traffic Free Zone and will constitute a drop off and pick up area whilst the other lane will be a Traffic Warning Zone and it will be utilised as a pedestrian walkway. All vehicles and shuttles entering those two lanes will require VAPP (Vehicle Access Parking Permit) accreditation.
Motorists travelling from Sandton will not be able to access the M1 North freeway from Katherine Street via Grayston Drive.
Alternative routes from Sandton:

  • Access the M1 North freeway from Sandton via Katherine Street onto Marlboro Drive
  • Motorists travelling from Pretoria can still use the M1 South freeway to get to Sandton and Wynberg
  • Motorists travelling from Johannesburg can still use the M1 North freeway to get to Sandton and Wynberg
Alternative routes from Wynberg:

  • Access the M1 North Freeway from Wynberg via Pretoria Main Road onto Marlboro Drive
  • Motorists will still be able to travel from Sandton to Wynberg and vice versa, via Grayston Drive
