Contest #548: Slauerhaffbrug, Leeuwarden, Netherlands

This unique “Flying Drawbridge” has several advantages over traditional bascule bridge designs. It allows for a more rapid open and closure, it allows for variable opening (open it less for shorter boats), and it uses less energy than most other drawbridges of a similar size.
