Bridging the gap! This bridge was conceived back in 1825 when @the.australian said that such a bridge would “give an idea of strength and magnificence that would reflect credit and glory on the colony and the Mother Country”.
The bridge however did not actually start being built until 1923 finishing in 1932. They had to demolish 469 buildings on the north shore to make room for the bridge. Designed based on hellgate bridge in @newyorkcity it cost @australia 6.25 million Australian Pounds (par with GBP) and they paid that debt off in full in 1988.
Now Australia has this great coat hanger bridge forever! Thank you Dr John Bradfield and Dorman Long for making it all happen and giving Australia something to be proud of everyday since!
Love being back in Australia! 😍🙌
