2016 experienced a few minor problems leading to the delayed start of both the 10 and 21.1 km road races. The organising team had extensive debrief meetings analysing actions leading to the traffic gridlock caused by insufficient road infrastructure. The organising committee developed a strategy directing all athletes directly to the start venues where we will guide athletes into convenient, safe parking areas with security guards. This will alleviate pressure at the finish venue parking area and require less transport of athletes in the early hours of the morning.
All routes to the Start Venues will be clearly signposted from the freeway to the Start Venue.
ALL START VENUES WILL HAVE A DESIGNATED PARKING AREA
PARKING AREAS WILL BE OPEN AS FROM 02h00 ON RACE DAY.
2017 Will supply an extensive shuttle service transporting athletes after the event back to their vehicles parked at the Start Venues. A total of 20 x 65 seated busses and 45 x 16 seated taxis will be used to transport athletes. No shuttles will be running in the morning to start venues
