A bit about this event
The Hunters Hill east of the overpass will be closed at Church Street overpass from 1.00pm on New Years’ Eve Monday 31 December, as in other years, until 1.00am on January 1, 2019.
A limited number of entry passes are available for friends and family of residents and commercial business on the peninsula. Residents will need to show proof of residency, for example a driver’s licence or rates notice to obtain a pass, with a maximum number of two passes per household and two additional, if off-street parking is possible on the property.
Passes are only available from the Council Customer Service Centre until midday Friday December 24 and pass holders are advised to fix their entry pass on the inside of their windscreen to allow for identification.
The purpose of the road closure is to regulate the volume of traffic entering Hunters Hill east of the overpass and to prevent congestion and parking problems. This will ensure public safety and enable emergency access. Police will be enforcing the road closure to permit only entry by local residents and vehicles displaying an authorised entry pass. A Park and Ride service with buses running every 15 minutes and requiring your Opal card, will be available from Boronia Park.
