Western End of Festival Drive – Temporary Road Closure Advice

Due to the construction at Adelaide Convention Centre, the western side of Festival Drive will be closed intermittently and patrons might experience some traffic congestion.  When getting here, access the Festival Centre car park from King William Street. 

When exiting Festival Drive during the day:

The western side of Festival Drive will be intermittently closed for traffic through to Morphett Street. During these times you may need to depart via Station Road, onto North Terrace.  Please follow the signs to advise best exit.

When exiting Festival Drive after 7pm:

The western side of Festival drive will re-open for alternative flows of one-way traffic, and you can exit via Station Road to North Terrace or Festival Drive to Morphett St. We strongly recommend you allow plenty of time to find a car park at either the Festival Centre or nearby facility, or you can pre-book a car park by calling BASS on 131 246 by 12pm the day before carpark is required or by Friday 12pm for weekend carpark.
