The bridge's design was influenced by the Hell Gate Bridge in New York. It was the world's widest long-span bridge, at 48.8 meters wide, until construction of the new Port Mann Bridge in Vancouver. It is also the fifth longest spanning-arch bridge in the world, and it is the tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 134 metres from top to water level. Until 1967 the Harbour Bridge was Sydney's tallest structure.
