Access Restrictions

Traffic restriction

Safety zones are closed to visitors. This is to help with crowd management and the movement of emergency vehicles. Residents will still have access to these areas and their homes, but will need to have ID showing their name and address. The councils will place prominent parking suspension signs on the route, and in safety and pedestrian zones, about two weeks before the Carnival.

Key points to remember

  • No vehicles are permitted access to the Carnival area after 9.00am each day.
  • Roads are closed until 2.00am on Tuesday but, please leave it as late as possible before driving vehicles back into the Carnival area.
  • Residents must have ID showing their name and address in order to get to their homes if they are in safety zones or if they have to go through a safety zone to get to their home.
