Gold Coasters are being warned to expect heavy delays in Surfers Paradise and Main Beach this week as preparations for the Vodafone Gold Coast 600 get well underway.
From today, motorists are being urged to allow extra travel time with several changes being made to roads in the area.
All southbound traffic on the Gold Coast Highway, between Tedder Avenue and Ferny Avenue will be pushed into one northbound lane.

The northbound lanes will operate as a two-way system until 6.00am, Tuesday 24 October.
“These changes, together with expected wet conditions on the roads, will result in significant delays on the Gold Coast Highway in both directions,” a V8 Supercars spokesperson said.
Traffic within the Vodafone GC600 circuit turns one-way in race direction (anti clockwise) with no exceptions. This includes sections of Main Beach Parade, Surfers Paradise Blvd, The Esplanade, Breaker Street, Ocean Avenue and Ferny Avenue.
Access to Budds Beach is via Cypress Avenue only.
Supercars said all changes will be clearly signed and Traffic Controllers will also be in place helping to direct traffic.
The GC600 kicks off this Friday, October 20.
