JOHANNESBURG – The 22nd edition of the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge is taking place today with over 28,000 cyclists expected to hit the streets of Joburg

This year’s route is a reversal of the one used for the last four editions and will have a significant impact on road closures throughout the city.

The Johannesburg Metro Police Department has urged motorists to use alternative routes with a number of roads being closed off for most of the day due to the race.

The event itself will start and end at Riversands Commercial Park on the R511.

The race will head north on Malibongwe Avenue before going south on Jan Smuts and across the Nelson Mandela Bridge in Braamfontein.

Roads have been closed since 5 am this morning and will only likely be reopened at around 3 pm this afternoon

JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar says, “Motorists can use Rivonia Road and the N1 as alternative roads to reach Sandton or Oxford Road.”

Closed routes will be manned by the JMPD and no access will be granted during the race.
