We walked across the bridge unfortunately it seldom raises out of peak season but the centre section is raised by cables, a tremendous feat.

This is a very interesting looking new bridge. I was told that rather than act as a typical drawbridge, the span can be raised and lowered as needed, like an elevator.

This is a comparatively new bridge across the Garonne. It is a modern version of a swing bridge. The part between the "towers" can be raised to allow the passage of boats. Sadly we didn't see this happen. If you go to the Cité du Vin it is close by. Very interesting modern construction.

Interesting to take a short boat trip to the La Cite du Vin and view the bridge. Take the BAT boat, it's cheap and frequent,

We took the water taxi to the Wine Museum and passed under this bridge. As you're approaching it looks like a lovely modern bridge but as you get closer you see the detail and how the middle portion is lifted, super cool! I got a few great shots if the bridge while the sun was setting!

Heard about this bridge online and how beautiful it is at night. Unfortunately for us, due to the long European summer nights, we waited for as long as we could, but the lights just refused to turn on during our visit, so we can't judge personally. From what we can see during the day though, it's a nice modern bridge.... More

A long bridge with middle portion being able to be lifted,allowing the passage of ships.The middle portion rests on four pillars which are pulled up with the help of metal ropes.

When I saw the bridge I did not understand what was the function of those towers. Then I noticed the innovative system they used. It is admirable, but I strongly believe it is more from a boat. That´s why that I recomend to go on foot from the water mirror to the Cite du Vin and go the way back... More

We walked across this bridge as it not only looks interesting but is an innovative way of allowing large cruise ships into the river. The road raises vertically to enable very large cruise ships access to the river beyond.

This is an impressive bridge and best seen from the ferry or river cat which winds its way up and down the estuary.
