"Currey, Susie, Miller, Dawe, and Gous streets will not be accessible."

Minnaar encouraged fans to make use of the park-and-ride facilities where busses would be available to take them to the stadium.

Busses would be available at the East Rand Mall, Clearwater Mall, Melrose Arch, Cresta Shopping Centre, Cedar Square, Centurion Mall, Menlyn Park Shopping Centre, Greenstone Shopping Centre, and Alberton City.
