The 19 Officially opened in March 1932 Sydney Harbour Bridge, the main link between Sydney's north and south coast of Sydney Harbour (Port Jackson), and is still by locals simply as "coat hanger" called (German coat hanger). The bridge was built in 2007 on her 75th Anniversary as a national monument in the Australian National Heritage List on this day. In the grounds of the Australian conservation authority, the bridge symbolizes the development of modern Sydney and internationally for the bright future of Australia. [1] In addition to the famous Sydney Opera House, this building is usually cited as another landmark in Sydney.

Furthermore, about 17,000 cubic meters of granite and 95,000 cubic meters of concrete were used. The steel came here to 79% from Redcar in the north-east of Britain, the rest of Australian production. The granite came from Moruya, New South Wales, and the concrete is also from Australia.
