Take the Train – but allow extra time due to extensive track works across the train network this weekend

Trackwork is affecting a number of train lines on the weekend of the event where buses will be replacing some services to the city. The impact will vary depending where you’re coming from so check transportnsw.info for more details to plan your trip by train.

The closest available train stations to the start line are Wynyard and Martin Place. Both are within walking distance of the starting area near the OPT for both events.

Catch a Bus

A number of bus routes run towards to the city stopping near the start line around Circular Quay, Wynyard and Martin Place. While roads are closed some buses will be diverting from their regular routes and terminating early as well so plan ahead.

Driving & Parking Info

We fully appreciate that the public transport options aren’t for everyone and some participants will drive to the event. Key roads will close for the events and existing restrictions in the city mean parking is limited so plan to arrive early and carpool where possible.

Road closures will be in place along the course through the Sydney CBD, The Rocks, Dawes Point, Millers Point, Barangaroo, King St Wharf and Pyrmont.

Key road closures will be in place between 5am and 12pm midday including sections of George St, Hickson Rd, Sussex St, Murray St, Pirrama Rd and other surrounding local roads. For full road closure details visit livetraffic.com.

If you plan to drive and park, remember to allow extra time walking from your parking space to arrive at the race start approx. 45mins before the event. Street parking is limited and remember to check the parking meters carefully for permitted parking times.
