The Sydney Harbour Bridge, like the double-decker trains, is another example of the foresight city planners had way back in 1924. The bridge is simply huge – pictures cannot do justice to this marvel of engineering. It has a pedestrian walkway, eight lanes for road traffic, two railway lines and a bikeway. It requires constant maintenance, with one coat of paint requiring 30 000 liters of paint for an area of 485,000 square meters.
