Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said ANZAC Day services and parades said the ceremonies honouring those who served made the road closures necessary.

"ANZAC Day services are well supported within the Gladstone Region and, with so many people in attendance, it is vital that their safety be considered of utmost importance," Cr Burnett said.

"I am sure we will see another strong showing of support for our veterans and serving personnel by Gladstone Region residents this year and we must make sure they can arrive and depart the ceremonial sites safely."
