As we rode across this bridge, our tour guide explained the unique feature of it. The entire middle section can lift straight up, vertically to allow large vessels to pass under it. That would be something to see! She also told us that last year,...More

This is an amazing (& expensive) piece of engineering which is hardly ever used as a lift bridge. apparantly shipping is afraid of getting trapped by strikers refusing to open the bridge. I true a real shame.

There are several bridges in Europe that catch the imagination. This is one of them because all of the cables must work in sique to raise the roadway.

This bridge has nothing quite particular or to visit.... But it is very useful for locals (or tourists) to get a stroll on the other bank which has just been renovated. When raising for the Armada season for example, it is truly a nice moment.

The bridge structure is interesting from an engineering point of view, and it does provide access over the Seine River. However, the mechanism is such that it lifts the whole middle section of the bridge if anything larger than a river boat needs to pass....More

On Fete Nationale (July 14), we took a cruise to see the fireworks over the Seine. Our boat started not far from Pont Gustave Flaubert, and actually we went back and forth underneath the bridge before heading to the fireworks. Not sure how the towers...More

Not only is the bridge ugly but it is also a disaster waiting to happen. The system is so sophisticated and fragile that nobody knows how long it will last and how much it will cost to repair it.

Quite a good piece of engineering, from a distance it looked like cranes, then I realised that the towers were there to lift the centre section to allow ships to pass under. It must cut some distance off crossing the river at that point

Not sure why this is considered an attraction, especially in Rouen where there are plenty of sights to see. Perhaps if you are an engineer? but there seems a lot of other bridges that look unique and they are not listed. I wouldn't think anyone...More
