how will street closures affect access?

Bumpers ‘n’ Beats requires road closures to ensure the safe and effective implementation of bump-in/bump-out and management of infrastructure requirements of this event.

This ensures everyone involved from contractors, participants and attendees have a safe environment in which to participate.

We take the safety of our workers, contractors and content providers seriously.
Road closures are necessary, however pedestrian access is not affected in anyway. Customers and visitors to Victoria street have a one to four minute hop, skip, jump or roll to all businesses in and around Victoria street. The various car parks around Wittenoom St Elliot St and Blair St are not affected by event road closures. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the TMP, please feel free to contact us via our contact form. We look forward to ensuring you get as much value out of this event as much as you enjoy attending.

Regards, the BnB 24 team.
