  • Location visited with a local guide. It appears that this original Bailey bridge a Kapok bridge (= ropes bridge) replaces. Clarification; during the turbulent days, October 1944, warfare was at this location by the Canadian genius a Kapok bridge strained to just infantry forces. Reason: the underlying meadows had no direct connection with important traffic roads, which is was important to tanks and other rolling stock in the fight to throw quickly. The first users of the Kapok bridge were German soldiers who came to vomit. It is only after the intake of Sint Laureins and Zeeland that the Bailey bridge was laid for the civilian population. Now here is the Bailey bridge that was called elsewhere used to the channels to cross. Military and technically these bridges were an important link in the whole operation "release of the Scheldt estuary – Operation Switchback". Today the bridge is only accessible for cyclists and walkers.

  • One would sometimes forget (want to) but also here the second world war raged fierce. Especially to the Canal was ferm fought because it is a good defensible terrain. The canada bridge is a still authentic remnant of when the Canadians came to liberate this region.
