Road Closures Across the Festival Weekend

Road Closures

Festival Implementation

The 2020 National Multicultural Festival Implementation plan involves:

  • Construction crews who install the Festival stalls and performance stages will start work from Sunday 9th February 2020 and this work will continue until Wednesday 20th February 2020. Contractors involved in this process have been advised to notify their respective crews to keep noise levels to an absolute minimum at all times.
  • Road Closures across the City will come into effect from 6:00am Thursday 20th February 2020. A list of road closures has been included below.

2020 National Multicultural Festival Parade

We have had significant interest from local and interstate community groups, diplomatic missions and local dance schools to participate in the 2020 Festival Parade. In order to accommodate all the groups and making the Parade a safe, smooth and enjoyable event, we are planning to close all of Akuna Street between Cooyong Street and London Circuit on Saturday 22nd February between 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

During this time, excluding emergency vehicles, all other vehicles will not be able to access the closed section of Akuna Street.

As the parade attendees progress along Akuna Street towards London Circuit, the roads will progressively reopen as the parade moves forward along the route. The full closure of Akuna Street will not be in place for the entire duration of the Parade, with southbound lane reopening as per the table below:
