This year starting on the 4th (opening ceremony) – 15th (closing ceremony) April 2018, the Gold Coast is facilitating the Commonwealth Games. GC2018 is expected to attract more than 672,000 visitors as well as 6,600 athletes and team officials from 70 member nations and territories. Carrara Precinct (Fig1.) have been chosen as a main venue for opening and closing ceremony as well as holding athletics, badminton, wrestling and weightlifting over the course of 11 days. As KDV sport is located within the venue perimeter of the Carrara Precinct, we will be affected by the traffic (Fig2.) and the operations, however, KDV Sport will be open throughout the duration of the games and use this opportunity to welcome new guests and promote the venue to a world-wide audience.

KDV will be operating during the times of commonwealth games, and currently KDV is planning on the following
