Technology & maintenance - Sydney Harbour Bridge precinct


Project overview

Transport for NSW uses innovative technology to monitor the condition of various parts of the bridge, help schedule maintenance and inspect difficult to reach areas of the Harbour Bridge.

Project information


Transport for NSW uses 3D simulation software to maintain and monitor the bridge, providing a stronger, longer lasting and safer bridge.

We also developed a robot in collaboration with the University of Technology, Sydney. The robot can inspect difficult to reach areas of the Harbour Bridge, allowing for greater visibility and assessment of the bridge structure.

Repainting the bridge

Protecting the intricate web of steelwork from corrosion is the most important factor in conserving the structure.

Maintaining the bridge

As part of the commitment to maintain the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Transport for NSW conducts ongoing maintenance to ensure that this national icon is preserved for years to come.
