Woolloomooloo, Eastern Distributor

This view of the toll booths on the Eastern Distributor motorway is from the Domain. The footbridge links The Domain with the inner city suburb of Woolloomooloo. This photo was taken twelve years ago but I thought I would show it now since the booths have been removed and the footbridge is currently being rebuilt. I'll take a photo once the redevelopment is complete to show the difference. The railway bridge carries the Eastern Suburbs Line between Martin Place and Kings Cross.
