ROAD CLOSURES

Note, there will be a number of road closures and diversions on the weekend in order to ensure the safety, security and enjoyment of those attending the event.

  • De La Beche Road and Gower Road (between De La Beche Road and Eversley Road) will be a no parking area from 9am on Saturday, July 13th  to 2am, Sunday, July 14th . For safety, security and to aid traffic movement in the area we are required to keep some roads free of parked vehicles.
  • In order to be able to ensure this, there will be parking restrictions and a vehicle tow-away operation taking place on the roads mentioned. If you are affected by these closures, we would kindly request that you move your vehicle to an alternative location before 9am on Saturday, July 13th 
  • De La Beche Road will be one-way only (east to west) from 8am on Saturday, July 13th to 2am, Sunday, July 14th

This is to ensure the safety and security of concert-goers as they leave the concert. We expect these to be the busiest times in the area around Singleton Park.
  • Diversion signs will be set up to assist traffic flows in the area but it is expected to be very busy, particularly at the times when the concerts end.
  • Access to all areas will be maintained for the emergency services at all times.
  • Council Parking Enforcement Officers will be operating in the area over the event weekend to monitor indiscriminate or illegal car parking in order to help minimise disruption for residents.
