A man has been arrested and charged after he climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Sunday morning, police said.

Police said they were told about 6.15am that the man was seen climbing an arch of the bridge carrying a banner.

He parked his car on the northern end of the bridge, blocking traffic, before beginning his climb, police said.

Officers from the Police Rescue and Bomb Disposal Unit arrived and brought the 33-year-old man down.

Because it was "so foggy" it was hard to see the man, a police spokeswoman told AAP.

He was taken to Day Street police station and charged with damage, disruption or obstruction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

This offence carries a maximum fine of $22,000 and/or two years' imprisonment.

He was refused bail and is due to appear in Central Local Court on Monday.

Traffic on the Cahill Expressway was disrupted for about an hour.

Police did not believe anyone was injured but were unable to provide any further information.
