A man who police allege is responsible for the deaths of two people in a fatal collision on the Anzac Bridge on Friday night will remain behind bars over Christmas.

Adeeb Sukkar, 41, beamed into Sydney Downing Centre Court on Monday from police custody after being arrested on Saturday over the fatal collision.

Police allege Lidcombe woman, 25, and a Hurstville man, 38, were exchanging details after a minor crash at 11.45pm on December 2 when they were critically injured by a collision.

Mr Sukkar was allegedly behind the wheel of a silver Holden Commodore when he crashed into the stationary vehicles near the exit ramp of the Western Distributor.

The cars hit the pair while they stood on the side of the road to exchange details, and they died at the scene.

The force of the collision also pushed the stationary cars into another lane, where they collided with a Camry, police allege.

Mr Sukkar underwent mandatory drug and alcohol testing after the collision.

He was arrested on Saturday and charged with two counts of dangerous driving occasioning death and negligent driving occasioning death.

On Monday, the Burwood resident appeared in court and did not apply for bail.

The court heard he will remain in custody on remand for nearly two months until his next court appearance on February 2.
