Will access to Victoria Square/ Tarntanyangga be affected during the event?

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

Events South Australia will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Adelaide City Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Events in the Park Lands.  The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its original condition at the end of the event.

Events South Australia has committed to undertaking the following Park Land protection measures:

  • Implement tree protection zones as directed by Council staff.
  • Hand watering will occur during the occupancy period.
  • Temporary buildings and structures will be elevated off the surface of the grass to minimise impact on the turfed areas of the Park Lands.
  • Turf protection flooring will be implemented in high pedestrian areas.

Can I expect noise where I live?

The Tour Village and Expo will have a large screens showing footage from the day’s racing. While this is amplified sound, it is at a volume that has not caused issues previously and is not anticipated to cause any noise related issues for the 2014 event.

There will be a stage with amplified sound on Saturday 18 January 2014 for team presentations. This will include presentations on stage and live music. Event organisers will have a noise mitigation plan will in place for this part of the event.

A letter box drop to residents and affected businesses two weeks prior to the event will detail the event and a process for any complaints.
