Adelaide City Council is encouraging city users to prepare for road closures this week as the Clipsal 500 rolls into town.
Road restrictions will take effect from this Saturday 25th February and will be in place until the 5th – 7th March.
“There is a lot happening in the city over the next few weeks with Clipsal, the Adelaide Fringe, the Adelaide Festival and WOMAD all hitting Adelaide,” Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood said.
“Rather than being a part of the traffic, make sure you leave ahead of time, come in on your bike or take public transport to save time and help ease congestion.”
The temporary Bike Park in Hindmarsh Square provides free end of trip facilities, including secure bike storage, showers, toilets, cloakroom, maps and information and is only a short stroll from the race track.
The Bike Park is available on a first come, first serve basis and will be open until the end of March, as part of the Splash Adelaide campaign.
Clipsal 500 ticket holders can also travel free-of-charge to the event on any Adelaide Metro bus, tram or train service over all four days of the event. Race-goers simply need to show their ticket (valid for that relevant day) to catch a free ride.
