Travel Advice for Business workshops

The Get Set for the Games team is available to help you understand how your staff, visitors/customers and freight travel could be impacted during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

We are offering FREE Workshops for businesses wanting to understand how they can plan for the Games.

The workshops will cover:

  • how busy the Games could be across roads and public transport
  • what temporary changes can you expect to see to roads, stations and so on.
  • what this could this mean for you, your staff, your visitors/customers and those that service your premises.
  • how to develop a customised Travel Action Plan.

The information in these workshops will be tailored to your local area. They will take place in those areas where we expect there to be particular challenges during the Games. This includes:

  • Along the M1 Motorway from Brisbane to Gold Coast including:
    • Brisbane CBD
    • Loganholme
    • Port of Brisbane
    • Logan
    • Parkinson
    • Beenleigh
