All city-bound lanes were closed near Granville at around 8.30am to allow a rescue helicopter to land on the road, causing traffic to back up for 13km, officials said.

“We gave the rider every opportunity,” A NSW Ambulance spokesman, said.

“He was in a critical condition and transported under lights and sirens, police escort to Westmead but unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries and the doctor announced him deceased.”

Police urged the public to exercise “extreme care” when using the off-ramp exit due to heavy traffic.
