Sydney Harbour Bridge Still Facing Delays With Ongoing Police Operation

Sydney Harbour Bridge Still Facing Delays With Ongoing Police Operation

The 43-year-old man sparked a major police operation lasting five hours, with NSW Police later saying he climbed up the bridge due to a "family issue" and he suffered "significant mental health issues".

It is still unclear as to why the man climbed the bridge.

NSW Police are now working to communicate with a man who climbed the bridge at about 4.30am, with emergency services waiting on ground.

But this might change depending on how the police operation unfolds.

To keep ahead of traffic updates, keep an eye on the LiveTrafficSyd Twitter account, which is covering the delays around the bridge.

The report said that a security researcher, Dylan Houlihan identified and alerted Panera about the leak as long ago as August 2nd, 2017.

According to AAP reports, the man left a bicycle in the middle of the road at 4:30am AEST this morning, and has been up there ever since.

Superintendent Michael Fitzgerald says the man - who rode a bike to the bridge - was known to police and would face "significant charges" after being treated in hospital.

The Transport Management Centre also advise that traffic is very heavy on City West Link past Haberfield and on the Eastern Distributor, Southern Cross Drive, General Holmes Drive and the M5 East. Long queues of traffic were backed up on the bridge in both directions.

Buses across the bridge are delayed by up to 30 minutes but trains are running as normal so far.
