This bridge links the Bordeaux districts of Bacalan (left bank) and Bastide (right bank). It will be open to traffic in the spring of 2013. This project, offering 4 motor car lanes, 2 lanes reserved for buses and 2 foot bridges for pedestrians and cyclists, required slightly more than 3 years’ work. A feature of bridge is its lift span carried by four pylons rising to a height of 75 m. At a rate of 60 to 90 operations per year, the span will rise up to 53 m above the water to allow the passage of liners and masted vessels going back up Gironde estuary to the Port de la Lune in Bordeaux
