Sydney Harbor Bridge

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageThe Sydney Harbor Bridge is genius in its engineering. Such engineering astuteness is due to John Bradfield, who was named chief engineer of the bridge in 1912. However, because of various reasons (including WWI), construction on the bridge did not begin until 1924. It took eight years and 1,400 workers to build the bridge. Nevertheless, the dangerous conditions in which the laborers worked caused 16 employees to die (they fell off the bridge). Several other workers suffered injuries. ?

 
In 1932 the bridge officially opened and ever since then has become the main crossing between Sydney's central business district and the North Shore.
