This year for the first time ever, the road will be made one way for the duration of the event.
With a large number of users on the road, cars travelling up and down Queens Dr has been a safety concern in previous years.
The Gisborne District Council are generously supporting the event by implementing a traffic management plan which will limit traffic to one-way only from the 17th of September to the 4th of November.
As part of the 2016 Titirangi Reserve Management Plan, Council also made a commitment to consider future options for a one-way road and traffic calming measures. This was supported during community consultation. The Everest Challenge presents GDC the opportunity to trial a one-way road from Queens Drive to Endcliffe Road utilising temporary traffic management.
