Road works in the Sydney CBD are making the trip back to work after the Christmas break even more painful for commuters, with morning delays of up to an hour.

Live Traffic NSW says motorists wishing to access the Sydney CBD from the North Shore should consider using the Western Distributor and the Bathurst St Off-Ramp, with buses heading into the city delayed up to 60 minutes due to heavy traffic.

@131500buses says passengers can avoid the delays by using their bus tickets on City Circle and T1 North Shore Line trains between Chatswood and the city as an alternative.

Here’s what people are saying on social media.
