Roads will be closed and detour signs will be in place at all start and finish locations of the regional Stages 1 to 5.

A rolling road closure system will be in place for the remainder of the race routes on Stages 1 to 5, meaning that roads will be closed temporarily to allow the race to pass by and reopened after all riders, the race convoy and Police escort have safely passed by.

Rolling road closures protect public safety as well as minimising disruption at the event. For more information about road closures visit

DPTI encourages race spectators to choose a safe spot to watch the action, preferably somewhere they can be seen by passing vehicles. Spectator’s vehicles should be parked well off the road in a place that doesn’t obstruct visibility or property access.

The public are also reminded to take extra care in areas affected by the recent bushfires, and to be aware of the hazards posed by trees damaged in the fires. Trees that are situated away from roads could also be hazardous and caution is advised.

Adelaide Metro bus services will be subject to detours during the Santos Tour Down Under, and details are available on
