Sydney Harbour Bridge has today been shut down and traffic brought to a stand still by a police operation, after a unnamed man climbed to the top. 

He allegedly jumped out of a cab in the middle of the bridge at around 9:30am, and began climbing up the arch to the top.

Emergency services are still at the scene, and three city-bound lanes have been closed. Motorists have been warned to avoid the bridge, or expect heavy delays.
