Catch public transport and arrive like royalty

RACQ urged royal watchers, who wished to catch a glimpse of their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, to use public transport and be aware of road closures.

The Club’s Lauren Ritchie said the Royal visit would impact areas around the Brisbane CBD and Kangaroo Point from Wednesday morning.

“Queensland was named after royalty, so it’s great to see Prince Charles and Camilla in town, but it does mean there’ll be road closures,” Ms Ritchie said.

“There’ll be restricted car and pedestrian access around Alice Street, Parliament House and QUT Gardens Point from around midday Wednesday.

“With so many people out and about to welcome the couple, public transport will be the safest bet, that way no one will miss out.”

Ms Ritchie warned there would also be some road closures at Kangaroo Point when a 21 gun salute took place to welcome the Royals.

“This will be loud, and will make for spectacular viewing, but drivers should plan their route around Lower River Terrace.”
