Possibility of road closures as thousands expected to flock to Bay's beaches

Due to the expected increase in traffic and people in Nelson Mandela Bay beaches today, December 16 2016, the Municipality  would like to alert motorists, tourist, accommodation establishments and the public that there might be road closures in the vicinity of Kings, Humewood and  Hobie beaches.

"The Municipality traffic department will be at work monitoring traffic and implement road closures whenever necessary," said Mthubanzi Mniki, Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Spokesperson. 

"We encourage motorists to come to the sea side for the Official Opening of the Summer Season at Hobie Beach far early, at least before 15h00 so that the movement of traffic can be smooth. 

"We further warn motorists not to drink and drive as the municipality law enforcement will have a zero tolerance to such act."
