A Sydney CBD motorway with views across the city’s world-famous harbour is set to be transformed into a week-long party venue for the New Year.
The Cahill Expressway will be temporarily closed to vehicles for seven days from December 31, the NSW government said on Saturday.
Markets, performers and big screens will entertain visitors during the day, with live acts and pop-up food and bar experiences available into the night.
It comes as Treasurer Dominic Perrottet promises $200 million to bring global events to Sydney and regional NSW over the next four years.
“We are working to make sure Sydney and NSW continue to shine, businesses stay in business, and people return to our amazing harbour city to support the rebounding economy,” he said.
