Changed Traffic Conditions
The event organisers have worked with the Gold Coast City Council, Department of Transport and Main Roads and the QLD Police in ensuring that planning for the event has considered all aspects related to rider and public safety.
The course is open to traffic with the speed limit reduced to 60kph for the section from the start at Elanora Community Centre to Crystal Cottage (9km). All riders are asked to remain aware of traffic on this section of the course always. Traffic will be stopped by accredited Traffic Controllers at the Galleon Way-Currumbin Creek Road intersection and at the turning point on Galleon Way for 72km teams to provide riders with the right of way. Traffic will also be stopped at the Tomewin Mountain Road intersection to ensure rider safety. Riders are to remain on the left-hand side of the carriageway and to take care when overtaking other riders.
The road will be closed to traffic in both directions from Fordyce Close just west of the Tomewin Mountain Road turn-off (9km) to the turning point at Camp Eden (18km). Access will be permitted for residents, so riders are requested to remain aware of the possibility of vehicles. Please remain on the left-hand side of the carriageway and take care when overtaking other riders.
There will be a lead vehicle and follow vehicle on course plus two police motorbikes and two additional roving motorbike marshalls.
