NSW Police have released details of road closures and special event clearways for Mosman and North Sydney local government areas during the 2022 New Year’s Eve celebrations.

We encourage everyone to leave the car at home and use public transport if you’re heading out locally, with many local streets closed or blocked off to traffic.

Sydney’s spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks will attract huge local crowds again following reduced crowds due to Covid.
