Commonwealth Games

This event was orchestrated by Melbourne 2006 and Daly’s Traffic were successful for three events; the lawn bowls, the marathon and the cycle time race.

The lawn bowls kicked off prior to the opening ceremony and required resigning of local streets, linemarking, asphalting, erection of temporary fencing, general traffic management during event days and reinstatement after the event.

For a quarter of the 42km marathon route, Daly’s were required to close roads, resign streets and implement and reinstate various other treatments including the closing of St Kilda Road.

The last assignment of this campaign was the cycle race based on a circuit around the Botanical Gardens. This required the closing/re-opening of, amongst others, Punt Road between the familiarisation and actual event. This required rolling crews over a 96 hour period and is a huge credit to all our staff.
