CONSTRUCTING THE BRIDGE
The Bridge is an epic 'nuts and bolts' engineering tale. The Sydney Harbour Bridge was built at the moment of transition from the hand-made age to the automated.
As its slender railings arched from either side of the Harbour, construction methods were revolutionised - steam power and sweat were eclipsed by new technologies. When its two halves were joined, the entire nation celebrated its place in the modern man-made world.
