Chaos on a busy inner-Sydney street has been narrowly avoided after a crane toppled on a construction site on Friday afternoon.
Police say the crane was driven into a ditch, causing it to fall at the site on Alice Street in Newtown.
“The operator was moving the crane when it has gone into a ditch, toppling and landing near the roadway,” a police spokeswoman said.
WorkCover had been notified of the accident and local traffic diversions were in place.
Editor NOTES: This looks to be a drill rig / pile driver instead of a crane. Â Ground conditions is my guess.
