Hollywood flick to shut Harbour Bridge

Filming of a Hollywood blockbuster starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt will see the Sydney Harbour Bridge closed in both directions over the weekend.

The movie adaptation of 1980s television series The Fall Guy is a show-stopper for vehicles and pedestrians, with all lanes across the bridge shut from 3am to 10am on Sunday, January 22.

Trains will continue to run across the bridge, which will be closed for all other vehicles as well as pedestrians and cyclists.

The Sydney Harbour Tunnel will remain open while filming takes place.

The Cahill Expressway over Circular Quay will also be closed for filming on Sunday, in both directions from 1am to 12.30pm.

Based on an TV series of the same name, The Fall Guy follows a burnt-out stuntman who moonlights as a bounty hunter, played by Gosling.

Filming began in October last year at Disney Studios Australia in Moore Park.

Former federal arts minister Paul Fletcher last year said the production would inject more than $244 million into the Australian economy.

Traffic on the bridge will be disrupted from January 20 to 25 for maintenance on the bridge deck and work on the Warringah Freeway upgrade.
