Types of Road Closures

Full Road Closures

Roads will be fully closed to traffic. Alternate routes will be provided and signed by traffic control; but plan ahead to ensure there are minimal delays.

*Note* Local residents can access their properties under escort only; please expect some delays and if possible ring 0402 226 333 in advance to arrange the escort.

Stop-Go Road Closures

Traffic is temporarily held for race starts/finishes and u-turns only. Delays experienced are usually 30 – 60 seconds.  Traffic will be stopped by traffic control until it is safe to proceed again. We appreciate your patience during minor delays.

Rolling Road Closures

Roads will be disrupted under rolling road closures and escorted by police and support vehicle convoys. Local access will be maintained. Motorists must stay behind a group of cyclists racing and not overtake until there is an additional lane to do so. Cars approaching the convoy will be stopped on the side of the road by Police.

Residents encountering the convoy simply need to wait on the side of the road for the convoy to move past quickly and follow Police instructions. A two or three minute wait is all that the motorists will likely have to endure. 

Shared Road

This means that racing will be taking place on the road. Roads will be open to traffic as usual and cyclists have been directed to stick to the left hand side of the road. Normal road rules apply.

Please be aware that there will be a number of cyclists racing on the road.
