The G20 rolls into Brisbane next week and with this will come delays!
With an estimated 30 State aircraft, 4000 delegates and 3000 media as part of the entourage, the movement of air and sea freight around and through the deemed red zone needs to be considered by all.
This will include restrictions in relation to Brisbane airport freight, cargo terminals and businesses within the Brisbane Central Business District (CBD) and peripheral districts.
Access to the Brisbane CBD will come under strict security controls effective 10 November – 17 November 2014 with even the simple delivery of express parcels or small consignments being severely compromised in terms of delivery times and security. In addition, Friday 14 November 2014 has been gazetted as a public holiday for Brisbane.
There will be disruptions to the adjacent road networks and significant delays are expected. Freight terminals have advised that they will remain accessible, however, access will be highly regulated and time consuming with particular size and weight restrictions being applied by security on all freight at all access points.
