Road Closures & Fireworks

When community or special events are set to occur, in some cases local road closures are scheduled. Road closures help Council to ensure that community events are safe and family-friendly. Where possible, information about upcoming road closures will be added to this page.

Fireworks Displays are a great way to celebrate special occasions. Council typically funds or delivers several fireworks displays each year, for events such as New Year's Eve and Australia Day.

Works will also include associated steel protection works, bitumen surfacing and line marking.To complete these works safely and efficiently, there will be access restrictions under and across the Birkenhead Bridge for road and marine traffic. Environmental controls will be implemented to ensure there is no impact to the Port River. The bridge will be closed to road traffic for approximately 8 weeks commencing Monday, 17 August.

Road traffic detours will be in place, and pedestrian access will be managed throughout construction.Marine traffic restrictions will be in place for approximately 10 weeks commencing from Monday, 3 August.
