Not far from Sydney’s most famous bridge, Harbour Bridge, lies a more modern example of engineering. The Glebe Island Bridge was completed in 1995. The cable-stayed bridge spans Johnstons Bay west of Darling Harbour. Re-named the ANZAC Bridge in honor of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), there is an Australian flag mounted on the eastern pylon and a New Zealand flag on the western. The bridge is similar to others throughout the world but reminded me immediately of the Bunker Hill Bridge in Boston, built as part of the “Big Dig”.
