- East along August Town Road from the intersection with University Road to 19 August Town Road.

- South along an imaginary line from 19 August Town Road to the Goldsmith Villa gully.

- And, west along the Goldsmith Villa main road to Princess Alice Way from the gully to Hermitage Road.

During the curfew people must remain within their residence unless authorised by the member of the security force in charge of enforcing the curfew.
