Road users in Sydney are being warned to expect significant delays due to road closures in city’s CBD and eastern suburbs for this weekend’s City2Surf run.

More than 85,000 people are expected to take part in the world’s largest run from the city to Bondi Beach on August 11.

College, Macquarie and Park streets in the CBD will be closed from 4.30am, as participants assemble for the start of the run.

Roads are expected to reopen at midday in the CBD, Kings Cross, Darlinghurst and Edgecliff, while all other roads in the eastern suburbs will remain closed until 4pm.

Motorists are also urged to observe special event clearways, which will be enforced on a number of roads in the CBD and eastern suburbs between 1am and 4pm. Vehicles left in special event clearways will be towed and fees apply. This includes vehicles with local parking permits.

"We have also been working with the Transport Management Centre to minimise the impact of the road closures to residents and other motorist," New South Wales Police Superintendent Jason Box says.

"That being said, we strongly urge members of the public to plan their trips in advance, preferably on public transport, and expect delays."

The race starts at 8am from William Street and continues onto New South Head Road; then right onto Old South Head Road; left into Military Road and onto Campbell Parade; and left into Queen Elizabeth Drive, before finishing at Bondi Beach.
