Queensland Police have released information on the traffic arrangements for movement in and around the Central Business District and surroundings for the week beginning Monday November 10, with the main impacts occurring over the three core days of the meeting, Friday, Saturday, Sunday – November 14 to 16. Friday 14th is a public holiday (covering the same area as the Ekka public holiday) which will reduce the need for many to travel into the city, but police are suggesting that walking, cycling or catching public transport would be the best option. Police expect that traffic will be back to normal by the start of the rush hour on Monday 17th November.
City ferries and the City Cat will operate as normal. Information on bus and train schedules is available from Translink. It is recommended that travellers use the Airtrain if moving between the city and airport.
Travellers and commuters planning on driving into the CBD or South Brisbane should take note that on-street parking will be limited and congestion can be expected due to lane and road closures. There will be road closures and congestion on Friday November 14 and Sunday November 16, due to motorcade movements between the CBD and Brisbane airport.
For the latest information during the meeting, Queensland Police have set up a blog with important information and FAQs.
