Pitt St shut in both directions after Metro Hotel Sydney Central sign crashes to the ground
ONE of the busiest roads in the city has been shut in both directions just before rush hour after part of the sign from a high rise hotel fell to the ground this afternoon. Pitt St is currently closed in both directions between Campbell and Goulburn to pedestrians and motorists after a section of the sign atop the 10-storey Metro Hotel crashed to the ground, scattering debris in the street.
Early reports suggest no-one has been injured and police say a number of contractors are on the scene attempting to ensure nothing else will fall. Emergency services are hopeful that the clean up operation should be completed soon. See livetraffic.com for updates. Currently, people are advised to use Elizabeth St or George St as an alternative route.
