In all the work required to look after, improve and adapt the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the needs of a modern city, Roads and Maritime is committed to preserving the beauty and character of the structure and its setting.

Urban design, traffic, pedestrian, public transport, safety and maintenance projects all work together to support an average of 204 trains, 160,435 vehicles and 1,900 bikes per day (based on September 2010 traffic count figures).

Roads and Maritime continues to update customers on work being carried out on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
