The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel arch bridge carrying vehicular, pedestrians, rail as well as bicycle traffic. The Sydney Harbour Bridge connects the Sydney central business district to the North Shore, in Sydney, Australia. The Bridge was constructed between 1923 and 1932.
Why it is special: Nicknamed the ‘Coat-hanger’ because of its unique design, the Bridge is the world’s widest long-span bridge. Large influences have been drawn from the Hell Gate Bridge in New York, for the construction of this bridge. Measuring 134 metres from the top to the water level, the Bridge is the world’s tallest steel arch bridge.
