about Sydney motorways


Sydney Harbour Bridge

Built in 1932, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the worlds most famous landmarks and an international icon for Sydney and Australia. Remarkably, after 75 years the bridge has managed to hold its own as an amazing feat of engineering, coping with the relentless demands of Sydneys commuters while lending the city grace and beauty.

The bridge is used by almost 59 million vehicles each year. It provides a gateway between the City of Sydney and North Sydney and is a main artery for pedestrians, cyclists, rail and bus commuters, and motorists.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is responsible for maintaining the bridge as an item of National Estate on behalf of the people of NSW.
