A bridge that lasts forever by Steve Lyons


I recently came across a video on the Sydney Morning Herald website titled ‘Sydney Harbour Bridge: rust never sleeps’. This video caught my eye as the Sydney Harbour Bridge needs endless maintenance to maintain it’s value and to make sure it continues to be safe considering the significant volumes of daily traffic. In this case, Peter Mann (the Bridge’s asset manager) is making one of the world’s most iconic structures last forever. It’s a similar story that I’ve been promoting around ‘planning to make buildings last forever’.
