Several roads will be blocked off in central Johannesburg for various New Year’s celebrations, metro police said on Tuesday.

“Traffic will be diverted from 4pm around Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown for a concert,” spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.

Jeppe, Bree, Henry Nxumalo, and Miriam Makeba are among the roads to be closed off.

Commissioner and Miriam Makeba streets would be blocked off for a fireworks display. Wolmarans and Claim streets would be cordoned off for a church service.
