Opened on [[17 July]] [[1954]], the ”’pont de Recouvrance”’ is a bridge in [[Brest, France]] across the river [[Penfeld]]. It was the largest [[vertical lift bridge]] in Europe from its construction until the opening of the [[Pont Gustave-Flaubert]] in 2008. It links the bottom of the [[rue de Siam]] to the [[Recouvrance, Brest|quartier de Recouvrance]], replacing a [[swing bridge]] (the [[pont National]]) destroyed by Allied bombardment in [[1944]].

Each pylon is 70m high and the 525-tonne moving cradle is 88m long.
