How to get your favourite sports venues in the city
The Sydney Olympic and Paralympic venues will be closed to the public from Friday, with the rest of the city’s sports venues also closed to spectators until early next week.
The City of Sydney is facing a major logistical nightmare as a result, with most of the main roads and main transport links to venues to be closed, leaving thousands of people without access to sporting facilities.
There is a high degree of public transport and access is limited to the major arterial roads, the airport and major transport hubs.
The city is also experiencing severe traffic congestion, with traffic congestion levels exceeding 300km/h, the highest ever recorded in the history of the NSW Roads and Maritime Services.
The State Government’s new road and road construction plan for the city has also been delayed, with an initial estimate of completion at a later date.
In a bid to tackle the congestion, the Government has also ordered a major new interchange on the Darling Harbour to be built.
The new interchange is expected to create around 100 new jobs, and will bring an additional 500 jobs to the region.
In total, there are more than 30,000 people working in the CBD, with many of them working in retail, hospitality, hospitality and leisure industries.
The closure of the Sydney Olympic Games has left the city facing an unprecedented logistical nightmare, with only one major transport link to the event, the Western Distributor.
The Sydney Olympic Sports Centre is currently closed to all visitors, while the other venues are expected to remain closed until mid-March.
The Commonwealth Games are expected for May, with Sydney due to host the Games in the capital on April 25-26.
