If you are going to avoid the toll I wouldn't even bother with the eastern distributor - If going to southern end of CBD, I find it is just as quick take the "old" way through Alexandria/Redfern (O'Riordan Street) and usually costs between $16 and $20 depending on final destination.HardieBoys said:To get to the southern CBD, it may be quicker to take an earlier exit and brave the surface traffice. You'll avoid the toll, but the extra time will soak up some of the saving.
Good to see that the railways haven't changed much in recent years :!:AussieDisneyFan said:I think the train is great if you are going to the city but agree with others about knowing the area. Silly me (an ex Sydney girl) forgot about cityrails brilliant rail system and blindly hopped on a train that was allegedly going to the airport. Somewhere between town hall and Central it changed its mind. Of course I was happily reading my book and missed this fact. So after 'waking up' to the fact that I was no where near the airport I hopped on and had to catch a taxi from Marrickville (I think) at changeover. Talk about an adventure.
Depends on where you're going, and which way you are taken. Last time in Sydney I was down near central station, and the driver wanted to take me on the distributor - via Cleveland St. Now I don't if that's changed since I lived in Sydney 7 years ago, but Cleveland St was one to avoid at all costs, and I figured by the time we got onto the eastern distributor, would have been already at the airport. I refused and was at the airport in less than 10 minutes.willyroo said:On Wednesday 10 November:
