Sydney bus changes

Changes have been made to some bus routes in Sydney to help reduce congestion during road works

Transport for NSW has revised a traffic management plan after significant delays were experienced at the northern end of the Sydney CBD and on the Sydney Harbour Bridge earlier this week.

As part of essential early work on the CBD and South East Light Rail project, a number of road closures have been in put in place from December 27 to January 12, according to a statement released by Transport for NSW.

A cable that manages traffic signals was also hit by work crews at the corner of Bridge and Grosvenor streets on Monday.

As a result traffic light phasing could not be changed at this location, delaying buses travelling into the city.

As part of a revised traffic management plan, one eastbound lane will reopen on Grosvenor Street between 4pm and 8pm to improve flow around the Circular Quay precinct during the evening peak.

Transport for NSW is also making changes to bus services to minimise demand on York Street and Elizabeth Street and help ease congestion in these areas.

Sydney Buses express services from Sydney's North and Northern Beaches to the CBD will travel via the Cahill Expressway and will let off customers in Bridge Street. 

This will remove more than 100 buses from York Street during the morning peak.
