ANZAC Bridge

9 posts in this topic

The ANZAC Bridge would have to be the 3rd major crossing into Sydney's CBD and surrounds.

It is one of Sydney's newer landmarks. Opened in December 1995, it provides a key link between

Sydney and the greater west with its urban expanse. Great to walk across as it gives a fantastic panorama of Sydney

The bridge has a main span of 345m/1132ft . It is the longest cable-stayed span bridge in Australia.

The deck is supported by two planes of stay cables attached to the 120m/394ft high reinforced concrete towers

Very nice looking bridge.  It looks amazingly similiar to the Ravanel bridge currently under construction in Charleston, SC.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Speaking of, where are those pictures you promised?!?! :whistling:

I'm disappointed -- from its name, I expected the "ANZAC Bridge" to connect Australia with New Zealand. :D

@ Pinky. Thanks. icecream.gif

@ Spartan. Yes, the older bridge is still there, I think acting in assistance to the docks. A lot of new motor vehicles are offloaded on one of the ports on the western side.

@ Ron Newman. If only LOL. Of course it is named after the Australian & New Zealand Army Corps of the early part of last Century...represented by this garganutan thing; an early 1900s' soldier on the western side looking down onto the traffic:

@ BigCityAttitude Don't laugh. I'm sure in the 70s there were serious kooks who thought it might be possible *translates a 2 1/2 hour flight into a bridge* :whistling:

@ monsoon. Yes, cable-stayed bridges are all the go - they're poppin' up everywhere. The construction of the world
