DRIVERS from Corryong to Tallangatta should prepare for an influx of motorcyclists on the roads ahead of this weekend’s MotoGP, police say.
Wodonga highway patrol acting Sgt Mal Burdett said thousands of motorcyclists were expected to pass through the area from today as they journeyed to Phillip Island.
“Be aware there will be thousands of motorbikes coming through the area and everyone has got to pay due care and attention,” Sgt Burdett said.
He said motorcyclists will travel through Corryong, Koetong, Walwa, Tallangatta and Granya today, tomorrow and Friday, before coming back through on Monday and Tuesday next week.
He said more police would be out on the roads to ensure all road users stayed safe.
“We’re looking at all road users, not just motorcyclists, making sure they pay respect to each other,” he said.
