Commonwealth Games Construction Restrictions

From 4 to 15 April 2018, the City of Gold Coast will host the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

During this time, there will be restrictions and specific conditions in relation to the construction of any development leading up to and during this busy period.

Council will monitor all construction within the City with particular attention to on site presentation, road closures and footpath closures within proximity to GC2018 event venues.

It is anticipated that due to the number of road closures associated with the games, there will be many restrictions within any precinct in close proximity to the GC2018 venues. This may restrict the ability to access a site and will also slow general traffic movement around the City.
