07 August, 2018

City2Surf in action

Major road closures and special event clearways will be in place between the Sydney CBD and the Eastern Suburbs this Sunday for the 48th running of the City2Surf.

More than 80,000 people are expected to take part in the world’s largest fun run from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach. The first race starts at 7:50am, and the last race steps off at 9:30am.

“Major roads around the start line, including sections of College Street, Macquarie Street, Park Street and St James Road, will close from 3:30am,” a Transport Management Centre spokesperson said.

Roads between Woolloomooloo and Edgecliff and around Bondi Beach will close from 6am, and all closures will be in place by 7am.

Roads in the city will gradually reopen from 11am while roads in the eastern suburbs will start reopening from 1pm with all roads open by 4pm.

“Motorists are advised to avoid areas affected by road closures, or be prepared for significant delays and allow plenty of extra travel time,” the spokesperson said.

Special event clearways will also be in place from 1am until 4pm along the entire length of the 14km course, as well as on Bondi Road and parts of Old South Head Road.

“Make sure you check the signs when parking, especially if you’re leaving your car overnight on Saturday, as vehicles left in these clearways will be towed and a fee applies.”

“Anyone taking part in the City2Surf should catch public transport as there will be plenty of extra services running, and travel is covered by your entry fee.”

The closest train stations to the start line are St James, Museum and Martin Place. Trains run regularly to these stations on the City Circle and T4 Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line.

Extra early morning buses will run on major roads into the city but some services will divert, end their trips early or use different stops while roads are closed.

“To get you home again, buses will leave Bondi Beach for Bondi Junction from 9am until 4pm and trains will leave Bondi Junction around every five minutes from 10am to 4pm.”
