    [Begun in 1831 in the extension of the rue des Saints-Pères on the Left Bank, the original bridge was known under that name until its inauguration, in 1834, when king Louis-Philippe named it Pont du Carrousel, because it opened on the Right Bank river frontage of the Palais du Louvre near the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel in front of the Tui…

    Description:

    The Pont Neuf, French for the “New Bridge,” is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris. Its name, which distinguished it from the old bridges that were lined on both sides with houses, simply stuck. The bridge is actually composed of two separate spans, one of five arches joining the left bank to the Île de la Cité, another of seven joining the island to the right bank. Pont Neuf is constructed as a series of many short arch bridges, as most bridges of that time w…

    Description:

    The Old Bridge (Pont Vieux) is still in use after almost a millennium. Originally built in stone (in 1035), then clad with brick, it rests on eight arches and is 151 m long. In the 14th century, it was fortified and reinforced with a drawbridge, and houses were built on the piers. It was a toll bridge serving the great Lyon road and had a fortified toll gate in the middle (no longer extant). It was rebuilt for modern traffic in 1820 and the bed was widened and the stone clad with brick.

    Description:

    Part of the cathedral is visible beyond the base of the bridge (the towers are missing in the photo, perhaps in fog)

    The bridge accommodated pedestrians and trolleys. Two avenues branched from the city side, one led to the cathedral and the other led into the main train shed. It crosses the Rhine at kilometer 688.5. Originally, the bridge was both a railway and street (trolley) bridge, however after its destruction in 1945 and its subsequent reconstruction it was only accessible to rail and …

    Description:

    The Fleisch Bridge is notable for several technical features that were advanced for its time. These include an unusual large width of 15.3 m, and a clear span of 27 m which made it the largest masonry bridge arch in Germany at the time of its construction. With a rise of only 4.2 m, the arch features a span-to-rise ratio of 6.4 to 1, giving the bridge an almost unprecedented flat profile. The bridge crosses the river Pegnitz in the center of the old town, linking the districts St. Sebald and …
