Anzac Bridge with Eights rowing below at dawn on an overcast Sydney morning. Photographed from Black wattle Bay anchorage, Sydney Harbour, New South Wales, Australia.
The ANZAC Bridge is one of Sydney's outstanding landmarks. Opened in December 1995, at a cost of $170 million, it provides a key link between Sydney City and the suburbs to the west. Via the City West Link and Victoria Rd it is the major east west route to the western suburbs and the M4 motorway to the Blue Mountains. On the 80th anniversary of Armistice Day, the 11th November 1998, the premier of NSW, Bob Carr, renamed the bridge as the ANZAC Bridge as a memorial to members from both sides of the Tasman who formed the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps - the ANZACs.
The Anzac Bridge has a main span of 345m, and a total length of over 800m. From the two 120m high towers, 128 stay cables support the reinforced concrete deck. It is the longest cable-stayed span bridge in Australia.
