Road closures and traffic management

Staff using equipment for roadworks

If you want to close access to a road for your event, you will need to apply for a permit and plan appropriate traffic management.

At least three months before your event, you will need to apply for approvals from:

Notifying organisations and agencies of a road closure

Once road closure approvals have been granted, you need to provide notification to the following organisations:

  • All emergency services – Police, CFA, SES, Ambulance Victoria
  • Taxi Association of Bendigo
  • Bus services
  • Tramways
  • Bendigo Hospital

You also need to place a public notice in local papers and inform any business and/or residents who may be affected.

Traffic management plans, signage, barriers, personnel

Only qualified personnel are allowed to perform road closures and provide traffic management assistance.

The City's Works Unit can arrange for the signs, barriers, traffic management plans and personnel on merit via an approval process - fees may apply.
