We're keen to help visitors get around the city centre as easily as possible in the aftermath of the fire at Bank Buildings. Just follow the yellow dot trail. 

Yellow dot trail

We've created a downloadable map which shows the pedestrian route around the pink zone, including streets and areas that are accessible. The pink zone marked on the map is currently closed to pedestrians and vehicles.

The cordon around the affected area is expected to stay in place for about four months after the incident.
