Access is available to Emmett Street. Access to Newtown Ave and Willson Streets is available from Daniell Street. Wilson Street from Riddiford Street and approximately 50 metres to the East is also closed.

Elsewhere traffic is diverted. Traffic to the eastern suburbs and southern Newtown is diverted down Owen Street which becomes "one-way" from Mein Street to Constable Street. Traffic from the Eastern Suburbs or southern Newtown travelling towards the city or to the festivval will turn right along Daniell Street to Mein Street.

Parking restrictions apply in Mein, Owen, Riddiford, Wilson, Daniel, Green, and Constable Streets
