While many Sydneysiders are still working from home, some of us have recommenced our daily commute over the Harbour Bridge to the city. If you're one of them, your journey today may take a little longer than usual today.

As of 7.40am on Thursday, August 27, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is closed in both directions and a helicopter is on site, in response to a serious two-car crash.

Transport for NSW says there is no forecast for when all northbound and southbound lanes will reopen and is telling Sydneysiders to avoid the area, reconsider non-essential travel and consider working from home (if they're not already).

The Sydney Harbour Tunnel is still open, but, because of the crash, traffic is currently backed up to Artarmon in the north and across to Kings Cross in the east.

Buses are terminating at North Sydney Station, Milsons Point and McMahons Point and while trains are still running, Transport for NSW has warned that there may be increased patronage on trains and to continue to social distance as much as possible.

For more information about the status of the Harbour Bridge and current traffic, head over to the Live Traffic website. To stay up-to-date with trains and buses, check the Transport for NSW website and real-time apps
