Territory And Municipal Services have published their plans for the return of official Summernats activity to Northbourne Avenue.
The Summernats City Cruise of up to 200 vehicles will be held at midday on Thursday 5 January 2012.
The City Cruise will make its way from Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) departing from the Summernats entrance near the old Shell service station site, Stirling Avenue, turning right onto the Federal Highway to travel along Northbourne Avenue into the City. Vehicles will then turn at the intersection with London Circuit and return back up Northbourne to EPIC.
The Federal Highway and Northbourne Avenue will be closed in sections as the Cruise passes meaning there will be a short disruptions for motorists, pedestrians and ACTION commuters.
Key points to note:
— All road rules will apply
— Cruise will travel at 40km/hr with a police escort
— Uniformed police presence along the route
— Alcohol ban in public areas along the Cruise route
— No viewing from the central median strip
The best vantage points to see the Cruise are in the City and at the Summernats entrance near the old Shell service station site, Stirling Avenue, and the Federal Highway. These locations are where the vehicles will be travelling at their slowest so people have more of a chance to see them.
