Wgtn storm update - all is calm - but be careful on commute
• The extreme winds that hit the city yesterday had rapidly abated by midnight - and there is hardly a breeze in the city this morning
• however motorists, motorcyclists and cyclists are urged to be careful and watch out for fallen trees, slips and debris on roads around the city
• there have been reports of windows blown in by the wind late last night at several sies around the CBD - so there may still be broken glass on some footpaths
• Willis Street in the CBD is now open to buses and other traffic following rapid work overnight to make safe the construction site where a large scaffolding structure collapsed about 4.30pm yesterday at the height of the storm. A large digger was used to demolish and flatten the partly collapsed structure overnight. The site is now barriered off and the western side of Willis Street is now open to pedestrians.
• Shelly Bay Road on the Miramar Peninsula will be closed (between the Shelly Bay defence base and Scorching Bay) until at least one very large tree can be removed from the road.
