Traffic Management & Public Events

In traffic management terms a special event is any planned activity that is wholly or partly conducted on a road, requires special traffic management arrangements, and may involve large numbers of participants and or spectators. Examples are marathons, fun runs, cycling events, parades, marches, street market days, and fundraising events. The definition also applies to events conducted in your own venue if the event requires special traffic management arrangements.

From a traffic and transport perspective, a special event needs to:

  • ensure the safe separation of event patrons, participants and volunteers from traffic
  • manage the reduced capacity of the road system
  • minimise the traffic impact on the non-event community and emergency services

Applications for traffic management of special events must be submitted to Council at least 12 weeks before the event is to be held.
