Road closures

  • At the end of high capacity games, King William Rd closes from North Tce to War Memorial Dr to facilitate post-game bus operation. This road closure is put in place for games with an anticipated attendance of 35,000 and above. The road closes half an hour before the end of the game and re-opens 1hr 20min after the conclusion (or earlier if deemed safe). Emergency vehicles have a clear passage through this temporary closure.

  • Access along Festival Dr, where the Riverbank Bridge meets the Festival Centre, is controlled by traffic marshals to ensure a safe passage for pedestrian movement between the Riverbank Bridge and the Railway Station. 

  • War Memorial Dr closes three hours prior to the match and two hours post-match to ensure a safe passage for patrons arriving and departing via the Riverbank Bridge. 

Speed restrictions

A 25kph speed restriction operates on North Tce (from Morphett St Bridge to King William St) to allow the safe passage of pedestrians and vehicles during the post-match period.
