Overview

One of Brisbane's most recognizable icons, the Story Bridge is 777 metres (2,549 feet) and reaches 74 metres (243 feet) at its highest point. More than 300 men were employed for its design and construction, which took six years. The bridge was opened to traffic in July 1940. Its imposing structure contains nearly 12,000 tonnes of steel, and nearly all construction materials were Australian made. Initially named "Jubilee Bridge" (after the Silver Jubilee of King George V) it was later known as the "Story Bridge" after the Public Service Commissioner, John Story.
