Plan your day ahead this 14th April as a number of temporary road closures, including Kangaroo Point and Story Bridge, are scheduled across Brisbane for the much-awaited Tour de Brisbane inaugural.

To make way for the event and keep riders and spectators safe, temporary road closures, detours, and diversions will be implemented on major roads in the area and then progressively reopened throughout the day. A team of traffic controllers and police from the Queensland Police Service and Altus Traffic Control will be on duty for this event.

Kangaroo Point and Story Bridge road closures are scheduled to be in operation between 6:00 am and 8:30am, whilst general traffic on Merivale Street will be diverted onto Glenelg Street and Gladstone Road.

Westbound motorists will be permitted to use Vulture Street between Stanley Street and Gladstone Road. On the other hand, pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the footpaths during the road closures.
