Netherland’s Astonishing Slauerhoffbrug Flying Drawbridge

The Slauerhoffbrug Flying Drawbridge called Slauerhoff Bridge in English is a completely automatic bascule bridge in the city of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands. It uses two arms to swing a section of road in and out of place within the road itself. It is also famous as the “Slauerhoffbrug Flying Drawbridge”. A tail bridge can rapidly and proficiently be raised and lowered from one pylon instead of hinges.
This speedily allows water traffic to pass while only briefly stalling road traffic. The deck is 15 m by 15 m. It is beautifully painted yellow and blue, representative of Leeuwarden’s flag and seal. Lauerhoffbrug is maybe named after J.J. Slauerhoff, the prominent Leeuwarder, Dutch poet. We hope you would be amazed to see the Netherlands’s Slauerhoffbrug Flying Drawbridge.
