When was the Sydney Harbour Bridge built?

Work first began on the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1924, and it was opened in March 1932. It took eight years to build the bridge.

Construction began on 28 July 1924 with an official ceremony to mark the turning of the first sod of earth on the north shore, at Milsons Point.

Construction was completed on 21 January 1932 when the last rivet was driven home.

The bridge was formally opened on 19 March 1932 with the cutting of a ribbon. However, while it was planned that Jack Lang (Premier of New South Wales) would cut it, he was upstaged by Francis de Groot.
