The 2018 Commonwealth Games will be held at the Gold Coast, Australia between 4th and 15th April. If you’re going as either a competitor or a supporter, you’ll need to know the transport arrangements to ensure you don’t miss anything. If you’ll be in the Gold Coast or passing through, but not attending, you’ll also be affected.
The Games, the 21st in the series, have been held in Queensland before, when Brisbane played host in 1982.
