tolbrug 1

This monumental draw-bridge is in 1990 reastaurated by ir van Driel and achitect ir Snieder. The starting point was to make a minimum-maintenance deck with preservation of the characteristic architecture. Due to this, the bridge got back its authentic look. The wooden bridge deck is exchanged by a steel deck. This project is an example of preserving the authentic look of existing bridges.
On the left is the older bridge from 1949, on the right the new bridge from 1990.
