Pont de Recouvrance vertical lift bridge



DescriptionRatingInfo
Opened on 17 July 1954, the pont de Recouvrance is a bridge in Brest, France across the river Penfeld. It was the largest vertical lift bridge in Europe from its construction until the opening of the Pont Gustave-Flaubert in 2008. It links the bottom of the rue de Siam to the quartier de Recouvrance, replacing a swing bridge (the pont National) destroyed by Allied bombardment in 1944. Each pylon is 70m high and the 525-tonne moving cradle is 88m long. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pont_de_Recouvrance
