  Harbour bridge
by globetrotter06

Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world's largest (not the longest!) steel arch bridge with the top of the bridge standing 134 metres above the harbour.

The construction of the bridge started in 1924 and took 1400 men 8 years to build. 6 million hand driven rivets and 53,000 tonnes of steel were used in its construction. Today it carries 8 traffic lanes and 2 rail lines.

It is possible to climb the bridge. I am sure it must be impressing, but it is rather expensive...
