ANZAC DAY ~ NEW ARRANGEMENTS 2016
You may be aware there is a light rail project starting construction later this year which will make the use of George Street impossible for future marches. Senior March Committee members have investigated and evaluated a number of alternate routes within the CBD, paying particular attention to aspects such as the width and gradient of the street for senior veterans, having an appropriate focal point for an Act of Remembrance, access to public transport, and minimal disruption to existing form-up locations.
After careful discussion with key participants and government agencies the committee feels the best alternate route for the Sydney ANZAC Day March is:
This route will allow the March to continue as a solemn March of Remembrance while also allowing as many spectators including senior veterans and Legacy widows to participate.
While the March will no longer pass the Cenotaph, an Act of Remembrance will still be observed and the Cenotaph will continue to hold the Dawn Service and Sunset Service Commemorations on ANZAC Day.
