Concrete Pylon – Sydney Harbor Bridge is one of the most famous landmarks in Australia. This is the largest curved steel distance in the world (not the longest) with the highest point standing 134 meters above the port. Warmly referred to by locals as ‘Coat hanger’, Sydney Harbor Bridge praised the 70th anniversary of 2002, with its opening in March 1932.
History of the Sydney Harbor Bridge: Throughout 1815, Francis Greenway proposed the construction of an extension from the north to the south coast of the port. He set aside time for this to come true with the surrender of the configuration which was welcomed in 1900. All the shipments in question cannot be accepted by the power to stop the extension interruption. However, after the First World War, more sincere arrangements were made, with a general configuration for the port of Sydney Harbor provided by Dr. JC Bradfield and NSW Public Works Officers. The New South Wales government then welcomed all tenders for the construction of the Bridge in 1922 and the agreement was extended to the Long Dormant English and Co of Middles company.

Port development began in 1924 and took 1,400 people eight years to collect at a cost of 4.2 million. Six million hand-held bolts and 53,000 tons of steel have been used in its development. Now it provides eight activity lines and two railway lines, one in each title, but at the time of development, two east routes are the tram line. They turned into street activities when Sydney closed the tram frame in the 1950s.
