Don’t cop a fine at the Brisbane International: RACQ

The State’s peak motoring body has urged tennis fans to ditch the car and avoid parking headaches, as road closures and strict parking restrictions would be in place during the Brisbane International tennis tournament.

No Parking Sign

RACQ spokesperson Lucinda Ross recommended spectators caught public transport to and from the Queensland Tennis Centre when the competition ran from 30 December to 6 January.

“If you’ve already got your ticket, you can catch the Translink event shuttle buses and regular trains and buses for free,” Ms Ross said.

“That’ll be the best way to ensure you can get to the event, without the stress of trying to find a park.”

Ms Ross warned there would be very limited parking around the centre, and restrictions would be in place during the tournament.

“A one-hour parking restriction applies around the tennis centre from 7am to 10pm during the competition,” she said.

“We’d hate to see a repeat of last year when hundreds of motorists were stung with infringements after parking to watch a match – so the simple message is, don’t risk getting served with fine.”
