Road closures for East Coast Radio’s Big Walk

Participants who took on last year's exciting walk.

As excitement builds for this year’s Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk on Sunday, May 20, the planning team has been hard at work ironing out the last minute logistics for KwaZulu-Natal’s biggest outdoor participative event.

On event day, designated parking areas will be available at both the start (uShaka Marine World) and finish (Moses Mabhida People’s Park).

Buses will offer a free shuttle service to participants between the start and finish from 6am until 1pm. Participants can catch a bus from the finish area to the start area before or after the walk.

ECR events manager, Zama Khawula said, “We will endeavour to get all walkers to the start with the least amount of delay. However, please arrive with enough time ahead of your race to avoid delay and disappointment. Please be mindful of the starting times for your event and allow enough time to park and ride before your race starts.”

On Sunday, May 20, several roads will be closed by Durban Metro Police. Make sure you plan your commute to avoid these roads.
