From 12am to 8am on Monday June 10, there will be no access to the Warringah Freeway northbound from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. All northbound motorists from the Sydney Harbour Bridge will need to take the Pacific Highway exit.

From 1am to 8am on Monday June 10, the Warringah Freeway will be closed northbound from the Pacific Highway, North Sydney.

The Sydney Harbour Tunnel will be closed northbound from 1am to 8am on Monday June 10.

Road user will need to take the Cahill Expressway over Circular Quay, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and take the Pacific Highway northbound.

The Sydney Harbour Tunnel will be closed southbound from:
–    12am to 7am Sunday June 9 and Monday June 10

Motorists will need to use the Cahill Expressway southbound and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

At other times across the weekend, there will be changed access arrangements for southbound motorists travelling to the Sydney Harbour Tunnel.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge will remain open in both directions over the weekend.

There will also be local traffic impacts for residents in North Sydney, Crows Nest and Cammeray to ensure capacity for the additional traffic on detour routes.

Special Event Clearways will be in place from 10pm Sunday June 9 to 9am Monday June 10 on the Pacific Highway from Bradfield Highway to Falcon St (western side/northbound) and from 10pm Sunday June 9 to 8am Monday June 10 on Miller St from Pacific Highway to the Warringah Freeway overpass at Cammeray (western side/northbound).

Transport for NSW coordinator general, Howard Collins said the bridge construction work is being timed to take advantage of lower-than-normal traffic volumes expected over the long weekend.

“We will make the most of the Freeway and Tunnel closures during the long weekend to work on two new shared user bridges, using one 750 tonne and one 650 tonne crane. This is critical work that cannot take place during normal traffic periods,” he said.

“The Sydney Harbour Tunnel will be closed both southbound and northbound on Monday morning, as the girders being lifted will swing over lanes to and from the tunnel.”

–    the Berry Street northbound on-ramp.
