Traffic procedures during Major Events at GIO Stadium Canberra

When arriving or leaving GIO Stadium for a major event (e.g. Raiders/Brumbies match etc.) temporary traffic arrangements are put in place by Territory Venues and Events along key roads to ensure safe vehicle and pedestrian movement within the Bruce precinct. The changed traffic conditions also are put in place to minimise disruption to local residents in the area.

The roads that have altered traffic conditions are Battye, Braybrooke and Masterman streets. It is the responsibility of all patrons attending events at GIO Stadium to park their vehicles legally, and the responsibility of all patrons to obey the road rules at all times.

Please show patience when leaving the precinct due to the increase in traffic and pedestrian activity during major events. When exiting please respect our neighbours.
