Traffic management

During special events we use temporary measures to manage traffic and parking. We work with event organisers and the emergency services to make sure everything runs smoothly, and to prevent accidents.

Our options include:

  • temporary one-way systems
  • road closures
  • suspended parking bays
  • extended waiting and loading restrictions
  • extended hours in Controlled Parking Zones.
