Long Description:
The Harwood Bridge was completed in August 1966, and replaced the last ferry crossing on the state highway system of New South Wales, Australia. Prior to the opening of the bridge, the river crossing was provided by three cable-guided ferries operating in parallel.

The bridge has a total length of 888 m, consisting of seven steel truss spans of 43.1 m length and twenty-seven steel girder approach spans. The deck carries two lanes of traffic and a footway. One of the steel truss spans is a vertical-lift span, which allows ships to navigate the Clarence River.
Visit Instructions:
1) After you've found a vertical lift bridge, go visit it, get the coordinates, a picture or two of it, and if it is in use or not still as a lift bridge.
Then log it and post your pictures! At least one of the photos must be of you and your GPS there with the bridge in the background. (No old vacation shots or photos off the internet!)
2) Include the coordinates, city/county/state/country and the name of the bridge (if it has one).
3) Include any interesting information about the structure
