GEORGE NEWS - Go George will be making temporary changes to certain routes to make way for the athletes participating in the Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge (OCC) on Saturday 14 September.
Two road closures
• A section of Knysna Road between the Garden Route Mall and CTM, in the direction towards town, will be closed from 20:00 on Friday evening until 13:00 on Saturday, resulting in minor deviations on Route 7, CBD-Mall, and Route 24, CBD-Loerie Park-Mall.
• In York Street, the section between Stanmar Motors and PW Botha College will be closed from 05:00 until 11:00 on Saturday. This necessitates all buses from Pacaltsdorp coming into town via York Street being rerouted during that time, as well as Route 9, Industrial Loop, that also uses York Street.
Go George manager James Robb calls upon the public and passengers to embrace the event and welcome wheelchair athletes from all over South Africa and several other countries to George.
Robb encourages passengers to plan their trips ahead of time, and to depart earlier than usual to avoid coming late for work.
"Some might also have to take a longer walk to work after getting off the bus, so please keep that in mind too," he says.
