Road Closures

The 2022 UCI Road World Championships will be a city-wide celebration of cycling and culture. Over 8 days, 11 World Championship races will take place on public roads between 18 – 25 September, within the Wollongong Local Government Area.

In order for the races to use public roads and meet safety standards, there will be temporary road closures throughout the event. This means there will be some changes to the way the city operates around the event period in terms of street access, on-street parking and service delivery including public transport.

This won’t be a normal week in Wollongong. The organising committee, Wollongong 2022, and Wollongong City Council are working closely together with NSW Government agencies and traffic management experts to minimise the impact so the community and visitors can continue to enjoy the city and the event. 

  • Races happen on a course that is closed to all public vehicles during race times 
  • There is no parking on any part of the courses during the road closures 
  • Emergency services are involved in event planning and emergency vehicles can access all areas at all times 
  • Pedestrian access is maintained to all areas of the course 
  • Roads will be progressively reopened daily when it safe to do so
  • Every driveway and intersection on the course will be open before and after road closure times 
  • Congestion is expected on roads near the course throughout the event week – we’ll be asking the community to please plan ahead 
  • Safety is the top priority for the local community as well as athletes, officials, volunteers and spectators 

The M1, Memorial Drive, Masters Road and all major arterials south of the City will operate as usual through the week.

To the north of the City, Towradgi and Balgownie Roads will be permanently open and serve as connectors to the suburbs of Mt Ousley, Fairy Meadow, Towradgi and Balgownie.

There will be half day closures on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Springhill Road, Five Islands Road and the M1 at Unanderra on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September only.

A detailed road closure schedule will be released in July 2022. In the meantime, please refer to the below drop-down list of road closures organised by suburbs. Following the table is an interactive map which displays the road closures. Zoom in and click on the various courses on the interactive map to see more information. To interact further, click “View larger map” in the top right-hand corner. Once opened, enter in any address to see where it is in relation to the courses and road closures, with corresponding days and times in the information panel on the left
