The Traffic Police will enforce the law and will issue fines, and may tow away vehicles that are illegally parked.


A free MyCiTi shuttle service will run between the Civic Centre and the Stadium Stations from 04h45 to 06h15 every 5 minutes and from 08h30-14h00 every 20 minutes for the return journey.
