Le sixième pont

Le sixième pont en construction... un pont dont le tablier pourra se lever et laisser ainsi passer les plus grands bateaux (notamment les vieux grééments de l'Armada en 2008)

Actually, a new bridge (we call it "the sixth bridge") is under construction. His perticularity is that this bridge can show up the bridge (I am not sure that it's the good word in english...) to let the highest boat come under it.

Spectacular architecture. I like bridges in pictures and this one seems to be high tech and modern in design.

Its an interesting shot. We have some bridges here that turn in the middle to open when a boat comes thats too high for the bridge.

Magnifique et intéressant. On retrouve le plaisir du viaduc de Millau pour la prouesse technologique et l'élégance des lignes. Le tablier sera naturellement bas et montera jusqu'en haut des piliers pour laisser passer les vieux grééments?

Beautiful photograph.
"The special characteristic of this bridge is that a section can be raised to allow the tallest ships to pass through". Beautiful bridge.
