Temporary changes during the Games
Games Route Network
The Games Route Network (GRN) (PDF, 116 KB) is a network of dedicated roads linking the Commonwealth Games Village to competition and training venues and the airport. It is the most efficient way of providing safe and reliable transport for athletes and officials so they can arrive at events on time. It will also be used to transport spectators and workforce to events and for public transport services.
Temporary traffic measures will be used on the GRN to help provide reliable journey times. These temporary measure will include dedicated lanes (Games lanes), traffic management measures and signal priority.
More information on the Games Route Network (GRN) (PDF, 116 KB) and when it will be operational, will be available later in 2017.
Waste collection and deliveries
Changes to local access around venues will also be in place which may affect your servicing (waste collection) and deliveries.
More information about any temporary changes to waste collection will be provided on this website and directly to affected residents closer to the event.
To support security and reduce congestion, no parking will be provided at or near GC2018 venues.
More information about who will need a parking and/or access permit and how to obtain one will be available later in 2017.
