Locals to prep for last round of GC2018 road closures
Gold Coast residents have been advised to plan ahead for the last, and possibly most significant, morning of road closures for Commonwealth Games events.
RACQ’s Lucinda Ross has warned marathon runners would hit the streets Sunday morning and road closures would be in place from Runaway Bay to Burleigh Heads.
“Spectators and locals should make themselves aware of changes to traffic conditions and the public transport network,” Ms Ross said.
“Road closures will begin just after midnight Sunday morning, however traffic restrictions will be in place from Saturday evening.
“From 6pm Saturday cars parked along the marathon course, or in the first 20m of adjacent streets, will be towed.
“We’re urging locals not to get complacent – while the course is similar to the annual Gold Coast marathon, extra security will be in place so don’t get caught out.
“If you live near the marathon course and park on the street outside, double check if you’ll be affected before leaving your vehicle there Saturday night.”
Ms Ross urged locals to head down and be part of the celebrations for the final day of the Games.
“There’ll be plenty of opportunities to see the athletes along the 42km course,” she said.
“Walking and cycling will be the best way to view the race and to travel around the area Sunday with pedestrian access remaining open along the course.”
