No fewer than 1500 workmen were needed to build Sydney's Harbour Bridge in the 1920s. Now it is one of the symbols of the city and its image is recognised around the world. It opened to traffic in 1932 and links the North and South halves of the city. At each important event in the country the bridge plays a central role. Australians celebrate New Year at Harbour Bridge as well as gathering here for great moments, such as when Sydney was chosen to host the 2000 Olympics.
