Australia's Bridges: Footbridge over State Route 40 in Darling Harbour, Sydney (1)

March 2011 (-33.871 deg., 151.203 deg.) Footbridge in Darling Harbour

Walking east on the Pyrmont Bridge you have to climb some stairs and walk across a cable-stayed footbridge to avoid being set down at a busy intersection. The footbridge over S.R. 40 is a 240 ft long, two-span steel bridge with four cables in a fan-arrangement descending from each tower leg. The bridge looks slightly out of place next to the ornate Pyrmont Bridge but reflects the eclectic nature of Sydney. We'll take another look at this bridge tomorrow.
