The Sydney Harbour Bridge celebrates another milestone with the opening of state-of-the-art lifts at both the Southern and Northern ends of the bridge. The bridge can now be accessed at The Rocks and Kirribilli, without climbing more than 60 stairs to reach the footpath of the bridge.

Costing $15 million this pedestrian access is for everyone. The new lifts can take 27 people or two wheelchairs and/or those in mobility scooters.
