Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: This is another view of the ANZAC Bridge from Glebe, one of Sydney's Inner suburbs. The bridge replaced the old Glebe Island Bridges, although the old bridge built in 1903 still stands behind it and is not open to vehicular traffic. The ANZAC Bridge links Sydney with its Inner West and Western Suburbs. It was opened in 1998 to commemorate the Australian and New Zealand soldiers (ANZACs). At the western end on each side of the bridge stand statues of a New Zealand soldier and an Australian Digger. The New Zealand flag flies at the western pylon and an Australian flag flies at the eastern pylon to symbolise the important link between our two countries. The bridge is the longest span cable-stayed bridge in Australia. The bridge is 32.2 metres wide and the main span is 345 metres long. The reinforced concrete pylons are 120 metres high and support the deck by two planes of stay cables.
