Isn't it nice to have some meaningful and informative statistics quoted in actual measurements rather than Olympic Swimming pools, elephants and double decker busses. Smile

Lots but it varies with the tides. To be more definitive one would need to know how many Olympic Pools were in Sydney harbour at the time.

Bridgeclimb in Sydney always gives the summit height as 134 metre.
I'll leave the maths to you.

I am sorry to be pedantic but if we are to be accurate with this we would also need to know how many elephants were swimming in the harbour at the time.  (Elephants swimming day at Taronga Zoo perhaps)

Let's hope everyone riding trains over this bridge is first vaccinated and tests negative before they board.
