Destination Revisited


The Pyrmont Bridge, a heritage-listed swing bridge across Cockle Bay, is located in Darling Harbour, Sydney. Opened in 1902, the bridge initially carried motor vehicle traffic via the Pyrmont Bridge Road between the central business district and Pyrmont. Since 1981 the bridge has carried pedestrian and bicycle traffic only, as motor vehicles were diverted to adjacent freeway overpasses. Pyrmont Bridge is one of the world's oldest surviving electrically operated swing bridges. The swingspan allows access for vessels that are too tall to travel under the bridge.
