If you are planning to head to the city for Vivid Sydney then please reconsider your plan until weather conditions improve, police are urging. The warning comes amid the continuing flash flooding, heavy rain and high wind that are severely impacting Sydney.
The Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Customs House, and at Central Park and Chatswood will still be dancing in the colourful lights as usual but majority of the Vivid Light locations will not be switched on this evening including Taronga Zoo, Martin Place, Darling Harbour, the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and the majority of lighting installations around Circular Quay, The Rocks and Walsh Bay, a police statement said this afternoon.
Destination NSW CEO and Vivid Sydney Executive Producer Sandra Chipchase said, “Vivid Sydney’s priority is always the safety of its patrons and with this in mind, we need to close some of the festival precincts and light installations this Sunday night and we encourage visitors to postpone their trip until the weather improves.
“We want to thank Vivid Sydney fans for their patience and understanding as we continue to manage the impact of this weekend’s extreme weather.
“The festival will run through to Saturday 18 June so there’s still around two more weeks to visit Vivid Sydney once the weather improves,” Ms Chipchase said.
