Image of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney, Australia. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel through arch bridge across Sydney Harbour that carries rail, vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district and the North Shore. The bridge, opened in 1932, is locally nicknamed "The Coat Hanger" because of its arch-based design. According to the Guinness World Records, it is the world's widest long-span bridge. It is also the fifth longest spanning-arch bridge in the world, and it is the tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 134 metres (440 ft) from top to water level. (EDITORIAL USE ONLY)
