This major public event will affect traffic in Cranbourne from 6.00 am to 12.00 pm on this day.
Significant traffic management will be implemented on event day with installation of the traffic management plan on High Street commencing at 2.00 am on Saturday 22 October 2016. This includes kerbside parking not being available along High Street between Stawell Street and Sladen Street.
From 7.30 am to 11.00 am the southbound carriageway of High Street (South Gippsland Hwy), between Stawell Street and Sladen Street, will be closed for the event. Through traffic will continue to operate in both directions on the northbound carriageway (including during the event “wave-off”). Side streets entering High Street from the East (Stawell Street, Lyall Street, Bakewell Street and Childers Street) will be closed after the entry point to the car parks. Therefore access to the car parking areas from these streets will still be possible.
Southbound traffic should use Clarendon Street to access Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre as they will not be able to make any left or right turns on High Street between Stawell Street and Sladen Street.
Northbound traffic will not be able to make right-hand turns on High Street (South Gippsland Hwy) between Sladen Street and Stawell Street. Left turns for northbound traffic from High Street between Sladen Street and Stawell Street, will not be affected.
A bus stop will still be available on the northbound carriageway adjacent to Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre. A temporary bus stop will be provided for southbound bus services in Codrington Street (between Lyall St & Bakewell St) and all southbound bus services will utilise this temporary stop.
The existing pedestrian crossings on High Street will be operational and controlled by event staff.
Parking bans will also be in place in Stawell Street (between High Street and Codrington Street) to accommodate the event bikes and in Codrington Street (between Bakewell Street and Lyall Street) and the south side of Lyall Street (between Russell Street and Codrington Street) to accommodate the public transport detour for the duration of the event. Delays are expected and we seek your co-operation during this major event.
