As part of the preparations for the Federation Cup, a soft lockdown of the Loftus Stadium precinct is now in effect. This resulted in the closure of Lynnwood Road and Jorissen Street between University Road and Walton Jameson Street.
At the same time, the extent of construction activities by Bombela, the City of Tshwane and the University of Pretoria in and around University Road, has necessitated the closure of University Road between Lynnwood Road and Burnett Street. These construction activities include the paving of the sidewalk on the east side of University Road over the next few days in preparation for the Federation Cup.
As a result of both these road closures, the robot on the corner of Lynnwood and University Roads has been deactivated. If you drive in a westernly direction in Lynnwood Road, your only option is to turn left into University Road towards Magnolia Dell. If you drive in a northerly direction in University Road from Magnolia Dell, your only option is to turn right into Lynnwood Road towards the main entrance of the University.
In order to keep a free flow of traffic at this junction, it has been decided to close University Road to all traffic, excluding construction vehicles, till the conclusion of the Federation Cup on 22 June 2009. This also necessitates the closing of the University Road entrance to the campus.
A Remote Search Park for the Federation Cup has been constructed on Parking Area H29, situated outside of the university perimeter on the corner of Duxbury and Herold Roads, which will also not be accessible for parking as from 6 June 2009.
Our apologies for any inconvenience that these arrangements may cause.
