  • Route 51 Forward travelling towards Conville from Parkdene will turn right into Rotary Street instead of Makriel Street and proceed towards Conville to join the normal route on the corner of Kloof and Rotary Streets.
  • Coming from Conville towards Parkdene, Route 51 Reverse will not turn right into Kloof Street from Rotary Street but will proceed along Rotary Street to turn left into Circular Road to join the normal route.
