Sydney Harbour Bridge toll booths to be removed

Published

Work will soon begin to remove the toll booths from the northern end of Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Minister for Roads Andrew Constance said the historic toll booths used to collect cash from motorists crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, but technology has evolved and these toll booths are no longer used.

“Removing the northern toll booths will improve traffic flow and safety for the more than 160,000 motorists who use the Sydney Harbour Bridge every day,” Mr Constance said.

“The work will compliment other projects improving the use of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, including installing pedestrian lifts on the eastern walkway and the future upgrades to the cycleway.”

Work will be carried out on the Cahill Expressway between the High Street overpass and Fitzroy Street at Kirribilli from Sunday 21 June to late 2021, weather permitting.

Access onto and off the Cahill Expressway will remain the same during the day, however there will be changed traffic conditions at night and on weekends, including lane closures and reduced speed limits.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
