Sydney Stabbing: CBD Roads Closed, Buses and Trains Cancelled And Diverted

Motorists are being warned to avoid Sydney's CBD following a daylight stabbing as traffic remains "heavy" in the area. 

A major police operation closed down Clarence Street and King Street on Tuesday afternoon, after a 41-year-old woman was stabbed and a man arrested in the CBD.

Two northbound lanes of Clarence Street, including the bus lane, reopened about 5:30pm, along with two eastbound lanes of King Street.

Traffic remains heavy in the area, with motorists already in the city advised to use an alternate route.

Some buses are diverting from Carrington Street due to road closures, and are using different roads and stops.

Buses that usually pick up from Stands A, B and C are using stands on York Street, and those pick up from Stand E are using Stand U on Jamison Street.
