Bridge that Gap

I found my way along Argyle Street to the steps that take you up to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Building started in 1923 and ended in 1932. 16 construction workers died in the process. There is a plaque to them on the side of the bridge.

It is the sixth longest spanning-arch bridge in the world and the tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 134 m (440 ft) from top to water level. It was also the world’s widest long-span bridge, at 48.8 m (160 ft) wide, until construction of the new Port Mann Bridge in Vancouver was completed in 2012.  (Thanks to Wikipedia for that! )

I set off to find the north side which I did after
taking my time to look at all the views as I crossed. I  took a few photos en route. There are tracks for trains and roads for cars. I took the train back into the centre  after I had completed the walk. It certainly was an interesting experience.
