Ryan Gosling stopped traffic for 8 hours on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.... didn't even go to jail for it while shooting a blockbuster movie

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Ryan Gosling stopped traffic for 8 hours on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.... didn't even go to jail for it..

Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling performed his own stunts on Sydney’s Harbour Bridge for a blockbuster action film on Sunday morning, while the bridge and surrounding city roads were closed to traffic for seven hours.

Nine News cameras captured exclusive vision of Gosling, wearing faded blue jeans and a red jacket, riding on the back of a truck.

The bridge was closed in both directions from 3am to 10am to allow filming of The Fall Guy – a movie adaptation of a 1980s television series. Its cycleway and footpath was closed from 5.30am to 10am.

City-bound traffic from the Western Distributor detoured via the Bathurst Street off-ramp, and traffic approaching from Fig and Pyrmont streets detoured via the King Street off-ramp.

Transport for NSW acting deputy secretary Howard Collins said delays were expected on detour routes and that motorists could consider using Victoria Road and the Gladesville Bridge as alternatives.

“It is great to see our iconic infrastructure on the global stage, but we do urge motorists to avoid the area or postpone travel until after 10am if possible,” he said on Saturday.Former federal arts minister Paul Fletcher said the production was expected to inject $244 million into the Australian economy and employ more than 1000 cast and crew, as well as more than 3000 extras.

The original television show featured a stuntman who used his skills and Hollywood knowledge to track and capture criminals, pursuing a range of lawbreakers, sometimes while in disguise, over five seasons from 1981 to 1986.

Sources have told Mosman Collective the actor – and his stunt double – will be using the bridge to film action scenes for The Fall Guy, a big-budget remake of a hit 1980s TV series.

Gosling is playing the role of Colt Seavers, a stuntman who moonlights as a bounty hunter.

Transport for NSW Acting Deputy Secretary Greater Sydney Howard Collins said the Sydney Harbour Tunnel would remain open while filming is underway.

“It is great to see our iconic infrastructure on the global stage, but we urge motorists to avoid the area or postpone travel until after 10 am if possible. While the tunnel will stay open, delays are expected on detour routes,” Mr Collins said.

“Motorists, including operators of freight and oversize vehicles, can also consider using Victoria Rd and Gladesville Bridge as an alternative.”

The Cahill Expressway Circular Quay Overpass will be shut from 1 am to 12:30 pm, with the walkway closed between 2:30 am and 12:30 pm.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway and footpath will close from 5.30 am to 10 am.

Trains will continue to operate across the SHB while it is closed to vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.

“A Sydney Harbour Exclusion Zone will also be in effect from 5.30 am to 10 am,” Mr Collins said.

“We also encourage pedestrians and cyclists to avoid the area while closures are in place.”

Mr Collins advised customers to take a train if they needed to travel in the area during the Coathanger’s closure.

“Buses will terminate on either side of the SHB in the Sydney CBD and North Sydney from 3 am to 10 am. Customers can catch trains to continue their trips,” Mr Collins said.

All citybound traffic from the Western Distributor will detour via the Bathurst St off-ramp, and all traffic accessing the Western Distributor from Fig and Pyrmont streets will detour via the King St off-ramp.
