7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Exclusion zone established around Sydney’s CBD during the coronavirus pandemic | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

Sydney CBD’s is now an exclusion zone as police conduct COVID-19 compliance checks on major roads and transport routes into the CBD.

Taxi, rideshare and passenger services are prohibited from conveying passengers to Sydney’s CBD between 9am and 3pm today, under a prohibition notice issued by NSW Police.

The notice was issued to seven transport providers in response to planned unlawful protest activity at risk of seriously comprising the public’s safety.

“A pandemic is not the time to protest and this prohibition notice is just one of the tools police have implemented today to ensure the safety of the community. These restrictions have been put in place to stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect those most vulnerable in our communities from harm. Essential workers, or anyone that requires medical treatment, will be able to make their way to their destinations. I’d like to thank the affected transport companies in advance for their compliance” – Central Metropolitan Region Commander, Assistant Commissioner Peter Thurtell.

The boundaries of the exclusion zone are:

• Western boundary – West Link Road and The Crescent at Lilyfield

• Southern boundary – South Dowling Street and Todman Avenue at Zetland

• Northern boundary – Bradfield Highway at Milsons Point

• Eastern boundary – New South Head Road and Ocean Avenue at Edgecliff.

Police say companies who fail to comply with the notice risk a maximum penalty of $500,000, while individuals face fines of up to $100,000.
