Division 4 Roads and traffic management functions
38   Roads
(1)  A road within Sydney Olympic Park cannot be provided, opened, dedicated, closed (within the meaning of Part 4 of the Roads Act 1993) or realigned by the Crown, a public authority or any person except with the consent of the Authority.
(2)  Except as provided by subsection (1), this Division does not affect the application of the Roads Act 1993 or any other Act to a road within Sydney Olympic Park.
39   Roads for which Authority is roads authority
The Authority is the roads authority under the Roads Act 1993 in relation to the public roads within Sydney Olympic Park that are vested in it.
40   Private roads
A private road, or part of a private road, within Sydney Olympic Park cannot be:
(a)  provided, opened, closed or realigned, or
(b)  regulated in its use, or
(c)  used for a purpose other than a road,
except with the consent of the Authority.
41   Traffic management plans
(1)  The Authority is to prepare a traffic management plan, or plans, for all roads within Sydney Olympic Park, including roads that are coloured mauve on the drawing marked “Sydney Olympic Park Authority, Sydney Olympic Park, Drawing Number HS-J-L-006” dated 29 May 2001 and deposited in the office of the Authority.
(2)  The Authority:
(a)  may control and regulate traffic in any manner and for any purpose, and
(b)  may temporarily close a road at any time and for any purpose,
in accordance with a traffic management plan.
(3)  A traffic management plan may, with the consent of the owner or occupier of a private road, apply to a private road within Sydney Olympic Park in the same way as it applies to roads within Sydney Olympic Park that are not private roads, subject to subsection (4).
(4)  A traffic management plan cannot authorise the closure of a private road unless the owner or occupier of the private road has consented to the closure. Such a consent may be given generally or in a particular case or class of cases.
(5)  A traffic management plan is to be prepared in consultation with RMS and does not have effect unless and until RMS has consented in writing to the plan.
(6)  The consent of RMS under subsection (5) is taken to be a consent for the purposes of the Roads Act 1993 and the road transport legislation (within the meaning of the Road Transport Act 2013) in so far as the consent of RMS would, but for this subsection, be required under that Act or that legislation in relation to any matter dealt with in or arising under the traffic management plan.
(7)  The Authority may amend a traffic management plan from time to time. Subsection (5) applies to the amendment of a traffic management plan in the same way as it applies to a traffic management plan.
(8)  Nothing in this section affects the functions of the Authority as a roads authority under the Roads Act 1993.

43   Effect of road closure
A road, or any part of a road, within Sydney Olympic Park does not cease to be a road for the purposes of the road transport legislation (within the meaning of the Road Transport Act 2013), the Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 or any other Act or law because it is closed or access to it is restricted or the use of it is restricted under this or any other Act.
44   Removal of unattended motor vehicles and trailers
(1)  This section applies to an unattended motor vehicle or trailer at Sydney Olympic Park that:
(a)  is standing unlawfully, or
(b)  constitutes a danger to persons or property, or

(2)  The Authority may, at any time, direct a person authorised by the Authority to remove an unattended motor vehicle or trailer to which this section applies from Sydney Olympic Park, or from any part of Sydney Olympic Park to another part of Sydney Olympic Park, if the Authority is of the opinion that it is necessary to do so.
(3)  Section 143 of the Road Transport Act 2013 applies to motor vehicles or trailers to which this section applies in the same way as it applies to an unattended motor vehicle or trailer unlawfully standing on a prescribed place within the meaning of that section.
(4)  In this section, motor vehicle and trailer have the same meanings as in the Road Transport Act 2013.
