Sydney Harbour Bridge traffic changes
03 May, 2017

Motorists travelling over the Sydney Harbour Bridge can expect traffic changes around the southern toll plaza from the evening of Friday 5 May, as work continues to upgrade the precinct.

This upgrade is taking place in stages, with work completed so far including the removal of the western toll booths, drainage and utility work.

For this second stage of work, an additional work site will be established between the existing tollbooths and the entrance to the Cahill Expressway.

This means southbound traffic will take a slightly different way through the project area but there will be no reduction to road capacity and no changes for northbound traffic.

Drivers can watch our animation (above) to get a better understanding of the changes and to help plan a trip.

The changes will be made during night shifts from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 May, with the new arrangements to be in place by the morning peak on Monday 8 May.

Speed limits of 40km/h will be in place and there may be some delays while drivers adjust to changed traffic conditions. Please follow the signs and keep to reduced speed limits.

Work to be carried out during stage two of the upgrade includes:

  • Removal of the eastern toll booths
  • Construction and installation of new road signs
  • Replacement of concrete slabs
  • Installation of further moveable medians
  • Removal and replacement of asphalt
  • Upgrade of the York and Grosvenor Street intersection

Sydney Harbour Bridge southern toll plaza precinct is being upgraded to improve safety, simplify traffic flow and improve bus connections to the city. The work is expected to be completed by early 2018.
