It cost a car sixpence to cross.
Until the Bridge was built, the only way to cross from the north shore to the city was by ferry or an indirect car trip of around 12 and a half miles. (That's 20 kilometres.)
There are many here among us who do not know the terms threepence or sixpence but may be included in the160,000 who now cross the bridge daily...
or maybe you choose to use the Sydney Harbour Tunnel that crosses under the water in an immersed tube.
