The steel frame of the bridge is situated on two huge reinforced concrete piers, which are 12 meters high. There are large balls at the joint of the steel frame and pier. The balls play a regulating role in the expansion and contraction of the steel frame. There is also a tower on the two piers, 95 meters high, all built of granite. At present, the traffic of Sydney Bridge is completely controlled by computer. The towers at both ends of the bridge are equipped with automatic photographic equipment, and the camera lens can automatically change the focal length and angle.
