SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE HISTORY

Chief Engineer and visionary JJC Bradfield realised the dream of crossing the glittering Sydney Harbour when he steered the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to its completion on 19 March 1932.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world’s largest single span steel arch bridge, measuring 134m above sea level at its summit. As a world-class feat of engineering it provides significant cultural and historical importance to Sydney and Australia.
