賽事前後的臨時交通安排(2 28(星期四)3 8 (星期五)311 (星期一)18 (星期一)期間)

由於賽事期間使用部分中環新海濱的道路作為臨時賽道,為保障賽車人員及觀眾安全,以及達致人流管制的要求,因此大會需沿賽道安裝看台、觀眾圍欄及其他臨時設施;並在賽區內建設臨時維修賽道和活動空間等。有關安裝預製的混凝土安全護欄、賽道圍欄的工程將由2019 年2 月28 日(星期四)起分六個階段在晚上進行,封閉部分道路,以確保安裝工作能夠安全地進行;大會已預留部分行車線或替代道路以供使用,以減少對公眾的影響,當賽道旁的預製臨時混凝土安全護欄及賽道圍欄完成後,現時的行車線將減少。大會亦會擺設臨時交通管理措施作分隔以保障行車道上的安全。賽後的拆卸工程亦會分階段進行至2019 年3 月18 日(星期一)早上6時全部完成。

 

以下行車道將會暫時封閉或改道:
