This has been the subject of much controversy for many years.The design of Sydney Harbour Bridge has traditionally been credited to Ralph Freeman, of England. Freeman studied civil engineering at the City and Guilds of London Institute, then joined Douglas Fox & Partners, a firm of consulting engineers specialising in the design of steel bridges. He rose to become senior partner and in 1938 the firm changed its name to Freeman Fox & Partners. Freeman was also famous for designing the Victoria Falls Bridge, completed in 1905.However, historians have determined that the real credit should go to John Bradfield, also known as JJC Bradfield. Bradfield originally proposed a suspension bridge, then a cantilever bridge, which was the first proposal accepted. After that, Bradfield turned his sights towards an arch bridge, after travelling overseas and seeing the developments in light steel which made a steel arch bridge such a possibility. Bradfield is honoured by having the 2.4 km highway that runs over the Sydney Harbour Bridge named after him. Interestingly, he also had considerable influence in the design of Brisbane's Story Bridge, and the short section of highway that runs over the Story Bridge is also named the Bradfield Highway.
