The sydney harbour bridge

The Sydney Harbour Bridge, an iconic symbol of Australia, spans the stunning Sydney Harbour, connecting the city's central business district with the North Shore. Offering breathtaking views of the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline, it holds the accolade of being the world's largest (but not longest) steel arch bridge.

  • In 1932, 11,000 vehicles crossed the Bridge each day. Today, that's grown to more than 160,000 each day.
  • There are seven vehicle lanes, a 24-hour bus lane, two train lines, a footpath and a cycleway.
  • Around 4,000 broken-down vehicles are removed from the Bridge each year.
  • More than 100 people work on maintaining the Bridge each day.
