Protests could hold up busy CBD streets

RACQ has warned Brisbane city commuters to allow extra travel time ahead of their trip home on Friday afternoon, with protests planned in the CBD expected to cause delays.

Club spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said roads around King George Square and Victoria Bridge could be impacted from 5pm.

“If you’re heading home from the Brisbane CBD this afternoon, expect delays if you’re driving or catching a bus,” Ms Ritchie said.

“You should try to avoid this area or consider leaving earlier or later to miss the hold up.” 

Ms Ritchie said some public transport options would be the best option for commuters to avoid the disruption.

“Catching a train is an option to consider, as the protest is unlikely to affect rail services,” she said.

“If your destination is along the river, you could also think about jumping on board a ferry or CityCat.”
