Riversands Boulevard temporarily closed for Telkom Cycle Challenge

Organisers of the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge have advised that Riversands Bouelvard in Fourways, north of Johannesburg, will be temporarily closed for the 22<sup>nd</sup> edition of the race, including its Kiddies Ride and Mountain Bike sub-events happening at Riversands Commercial Park on Sunday, November 18.

The private road, built by Century Properties to service Riversands Commercial Park, currently serves as a bypass for traffic while the R511 extension between Steyn City and the N14 is under construction.

To mitigate the impact of the temporary road closure, the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport agreed to open a temporary road on the R511. Traffic will be diverted to this road from Monday, 5 November until Riversands Boulevard reopens on Wednesday, 21 November.

Both the Department and the JMPD are fully briefed to manage the temporary road changes, including the ESSPC that oversees the overall safety of the event. The local taxi association, RULDTA will provide marshals to manage the taxi traffic, while JMPD accredited pointsmen have been appointed from the local community to manage traffic at crossover points.

The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport will use emulsion to manage dust on the temporary road and will erect relevant road traffic signs to manage traffic on the road.

We call on all road users to bear with us during the temporary road closure. We have taken every precaution and instituted all possible alternatives to reduce the impact. Please obey the rules of the road and drive safely.

Alexia Poulos, Primedia Broadcasting group head of events

An interactive App has been made available at www.cyclechallenge.co.za to help residents navigate around affected areas.
