The Sydney Harbour Bridge under construction

Between 1924 and 1926, on behalf of Sir Douglas Fox and Partners, Consulting Engineers, Arthur took charge of the office in which the designs and erection schemes for Dorman Long & Co's bridge contracts[1] were prepared. He prepared 3 preliminary designs for the bridge. By the time it was under construction, Plunkett was involved in civil projects in Nassau, Bahamas. Plunkett never actually visited the bridge before he died in London of throat cancer on 13 August 1937.
