Drivers warned of major Brisbane road closures

As thousands of cyclists prepared to hit the streets for one of Brisbane’s largest charity rides, RACQ has warned motorists to expect delays with roads set to be closed across the city.

RACQ spokesperson Lucinda Ross said the annual Brissie to Bay bike ride would see road closures between Southbank and Cleveland on Sunday.

“From early Sunday morning, some of Brisbane’s busiest roads, including Wynnum Road and Vulture Street, will be closed for the ride. We’re urging drivers to familiarise themselves with the changed traffic conditions so they’re not caught out,” Ms Ross said.

“While some roads will either be closed or have lanes reduced, in some sections, motorists and cyclists will need to share the road.

“A little bit of patience will go a long way – it’s Sunday morning after all.”
