Pyrmont Bridge 1902

Timber truss bridge constructed with a steel opening span, which was one of the first to be driven by electricity from the Ultimo Powerhouse. The span is still operating smoothly and the bridge has been recognised as a National Engineering Landmark. It is one element of the working harbour that has survived into the post-industrial present.
