ROAD CLOSURES

A number of temporary road closures will be in place in the City to allow for the NYE celebrations to take place. The closures put in place allow for additional pedestrian congregation and circulation areas without traffic hazards.

This will be the first major event in the City Centre since the introduction of light rail services in April 2019. Additional traffic controls are being implemented to ensure safe pedestrian access to and from the Alinga Street stop. This includes the closure of southbound lanes of Northbourne Avenue between Cooyong Street and London Circuit. Bus only access will be facilitated at the Northbourne Avenue and Alinga Street intersection.

For each firework display, road closures are in place 20 minutes before and 20 minutes after the show – this affects Constitution Ave northbound and Northbourne Ave southbound.
