Police Negotiating With An Unauthorised Climber On Sydney Harbour Bridge

Police Negotiating With An Unauthorised Climber On Sydney Harbour Bridge

"Due to the ongoing police operation on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, be aware it may be necessary to close lanes at short notice - please observe and obey all traffic signs and directions", NSW Police tweeted.

Four or five northbound lanes and two southbound lanes are closed, and the morning peak flow lane changes would not be made until the operation is over.

Police rescue officers followed the man on to the structure but it was proving hard reach him because he kept moving, a NSW Police spokeswoman said.

It is believed that a man, aged in his 40s, climbed onto the bridge just after 4.30am on Wednesday, and police are attempting to speak to him.

A man was seen climbing the bridge. Dozens of police and emergency vehicles occupy the middle of the bridge. The man has been moving around the bridge - a vital traffic artery for the city - with police closing and re-opening lanes depending on his location.

Drivers have been advised to avoid the bridge area if they can.

By 6.25am all north-bound lanes were closed, and city-bound lanes were reduced, a Traffic Management Centre spokeswoman said.

Commuters are being told to expect bus delays up to 70 minutes and are urged to instead use the Sydney Harbour Tunnel, or Victoria Road and Gladesville Bridge.
