Sydney Harbour Bridge Painting – 60 Football Fields Worth!

It might seem hard to believe, but the amount of paint required for the Sydney Harbour Bridge Painting is the equivalent of 60 football fields.  Putting this technically, it is 485,000 square meters.

Sydney Harbour Bridge Painting - Back in the "Old" Days

You hear it right!  The Sydney Harbour Bridge Painting requires 30,000 litres of paint.  I bet that makes Mr Pascol very happy :)  Seriously though, the harbour bridge is painted with a special fast drying paint so that if any paint should drop off whilst they are painting the bridge, they will be dry before hitting any cars below.

In 2003, the Roads and Traffic Authority began completely repainting the souther spans of the bridge.  To do this, they needed to remove the old lead based paint and start again.  Work is not expected to be completed until 2014.
