Bridge Statistics

Some quick facts from the Auckland Harbour Bridge project:

 

A SYMBOL OF CHANGE AND A ROAD TO GROWTH

A harbour crossing was first proposed in 1860, however cost was prohibitive at that time. Construction on the bridge finally began in 1954 and took several years to complete. Until the bridge’s opening in 1959, the fastest way to get from the north shore to Auckland was by ferry; by car it was a 50km drive.
