From 6 a.m., no parking will be allowed in the area and footpaths around the Parliament Building, Broad Street, Shepherd Street, Trafalgar Street, High Street, Ricketts Street, and Palmetto Street.

There will be traffic diversions at St Michael’s Row, Bay Street and Broad Street from 3 p.m. 

Traffic travelling into The City along St Michael’s Row will turn right on to Spry Street, and exit The City, or turn left on to Bridge Street, travel across the bridge in the direction of Probyn Street and exit The City.  No traffic will be allowed to turn right on to Wharf Road, as it will be closed to all traffic.

Commuters along Bay Street going into The City will be allowed to turn right on to Independence Square and travel towards the traffic lights at the junction with Bridge Street, Probyn Street and Fairchild Street and either travel straight to Fairchild Street or turn right on to Probyn Street and exit The City. There will be no left turns on to Bridge Street.
