As part of the preparations officials are advising people who live and work in the area to expect the following road closures:

  • Dovecote Street closed from the junction with Prince Regent Street alongside the ARC to the junction with Brunswick Street.
  • Albion Street closed at the junction with Brunswick Street.

There will be a significant police presence and people attending are asked to follow the instructions of police officers and stay within the allocated area for their own safety."
