Sydney Harbour Bridge
The Sydney Harbour Bridge works as a steel through arch bridge that transports rails, vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district and the North Shore.
The bridge is not valued only because of its everyday purpose but because it also serves as one of Sydney’s main attraction offering dramatic view of the bridge, the harbour, as well as the nearby Sydney Opera House.
