Is your street closed for High Voltage? Here’s our updated update!

The following road closures will be in place from 10am to midnight, Sunday 7 May 2023.

There will be road closures and parking restrictions in place on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May.

Road closures will be staggered, with the key closure time running 10am – 9pm on Sun 7 May.

The hatched area: You will notice the legend to the map and that much of the surrounding area is hatched. We asked the High Voltage organisers what that indicated and here’s what they kindly advised –

It is a bit of a complicated beast!

‘Basically everything within the hatched area is closed – Traffic management will not be allowing the public to drive down these streets looking for a close parking spot to the event. However any side street East of South Terrace will be open for local residents only, they will just need to speak with the traffic management on the day.

The streets between South Terrace Marine Terrace will be totally closed though as we can’t allow anyone to cross the event route during our closure times.

The No Parking signage and car removals: We have also asked the organisers to advise about No Parking signage going up here and there and the prospect of cars being towed away. Here’s the good oil –

No Parking signs are going out along South Tce, Marine Tce, Norfolk St, Jenkins St and South St.

‘South Tce – Marine – Norfolk are all along the event route.

‘South St and Jenkins are for the PTA buses to get through the event space.
‘Rest assured, there will not be any towing of vehicles on Saturday. We are saying no parking on Saturday 6 along these roads to allow us time to install fencing and to ensure it is clear prior to everyone going out on Saturday night and leaving their cars.
We have been advised to close the street parking down from early Saturday to give us sufficient installation time and allow people enough time to clear vehicles. If the no-parking applied only from Sunday we would have no chance of it being cleared by event time.
‘If the car is still on those roads on Sunday morning it will be towed.
