An event can impact on the safe and efficient use of roads by motorists, cyclist and pedestrians, including emergency services.
This can create potential hazards and delays, giving rise to injury or damage, resulting in loss, litigation or prosecution, if reasonable care is not taken by event organisers to protect both road users and those involved in the event.
Legal frameworks exist, outlining due process to be followed to effect closure of roads and/or control of traffic for events. Event organisers are required to adhere to these frameworks.
The steps to be considered by an event organizer (aged 18+) when planning and conducting an event within a road can be found on the links below.
