The exclusion zone around Martin Place continues to be blocked off by police following the end of the siege at the Lindt cafe at around 2am this morning.

If you are working in the area and need to know what temporary diverts to take if your route has been affected, here’s what Sydney trains, buses, ferries and roads are doing this morning.


Trains are no stopping at Martin Place. The lines affected by this include the T4 eastern suburbs and Illawarra line.
