Traffic Management

Traffic Management is a key part in the safe delivery of Race the Train. On event day, there will be clearly signed traffic management implemented at several locations by authorised traffic controllers from VORM.


Temporary ‘stop and holds’ will be implemented at:

Plan A - Bowden St, Forest/View St, Castlemaine (riders ETA 11:45am-12:00pm)

Plan B - Reckleben St and Chapmans Rd, Castlemaine (riders ETA 11:45am-12:00pm)

Plan D - Muckleford-Walmer Rd, Muckleford Station (riders ETA 12:00pm-12:45pm)

Plan E - Maldon-Bendigo Rd at Morris St, Maldon (riders ETA 12:20pm-1:30pm)


A speed reduction will be implemented along the Castlemaine-Muckleford Rd (near Sawmill Rd) to ensure the safe movement of riders from Boundry Track onto Sawmill Rd.

Plan C - Castlemaine-Muckleford Rd


Sawmill Rd, Muckleford will be closed between the railway line and the Castlemaine-Muckleford Rd from 11.30am-12.30pm. This will enable the safe movement of riders to exit Walmer State Forest on Boundry Road and travel south along Sawmill Road before turning right onto Prison Farm Road.

Plan C - Sawmill Road, Muckleford (the 5km mark of the route). Riders ETA 12:00pm-12:30pm

All traffic management changes will be clearly signed and implemented by authorised traffic controllers.
