No one died building the Manhattan Bridge, but some died while building the Brooklyn Bridge.
Materials used to construct the Sydney Harbor Bridge include: About 6,000,000 steel rivets, 2,800 tons of steelwork, including arch and mild steel approach spans, 122,000 cubic meters of rock was excavated for foundations. 95,000 cubic meters of concrete was used. 17,000 cubic meters of granite facing was used on the pylons and piers. 272,000 liters of paint were used for the initial 3 coats of paint. The span of the bridge was constructed using steel (mostly imported from the UK) with the pylons being constructed from granite and concrete. The deck is asphalt and concrete, and there are two railway lines across on concrete sleepers.
No. The Bridge of Sighs is the covered bridge prisoners passed through on their way from the court to the prison.
Sydney Harbour Bridge, completed in 1932, has an arch span of 503 metres, or 1650 feet. Its total length is 1149 metres, including the approach spans. At the time of its completion, it fell 1.2 metres, or 4 feet, short of the Bayonne Bridge in NJ as the longest steel arch in the world, but it it much more eye pleasing. It is still the world's highest arch bridge.
The "coat hanger" as it has been called by locals, as of 2009, has dropped to 5th in measured central span length, the two longest being in China.
There are approximately six million rivets in the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
No. Sydney Harbour Bridge is an arch bridge. It is the world's largest steel arch bridge, measuring 134 metres (429.6 ft) from top to water level, although it is not the longest. Up until 2006, it was also the world's widest long-span bridge, at 48.8 metres wide.
Area is 5255 hectares at mean high water mark (excluding the islands which have not been accurately mapped to the same level of accuracy as the actual harbour)
The main purpose of the bridge was to connect the North and South shores of Sydney, because travel between the two shores was limited to ferries
According to the related link below, since the Sydney hHarbour Brusge opened in 1932, there have been about 40 suicides from it. Most of them occurred within the first few months of it opening.
Arch bridges have abutments at each end. The weight of the bridge is thrust into the abutments at either side. The earliest known arch bridges were built by the Greeks, and include the Arkadiko Bridge.
With the span of 220 metres (720 ft), the Solkan Bridge over the Soča River at Solkan in Slovenia is the second largest stone bridge in the world and the longest railroad stone bridge. It was completed in 1905. Its arch, which was constructed from over 5,000 tonnes (4,900 long tons; 5,500 short tons) of stone blocks in just 18 days, is the second largest stone arch in the world, surpassed only by the Friedensbrücke (Syratalviadukt) in Plauen, and the largest railroad stone arch. The arch of the Friedensbrücke, which was built in the same year, has the span of 90 m (300 ft) and crosses the valley of the Syrabach River. The difference between the two is that the Solkan Bridge was built from stone blocks, whereas the Friedensbrücke was built from a mixture of crushed stone and cement mortar.
Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is currently building the Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Crossing, which is scheduled for completion in 2012. When completed, it will be the largest arch bridge in the world, with a main span 667 metres (2,188 ft) long.
