  • That's a shame! The bridge made his toilet, the nacelle was filed. He must wait until 2019 its reopening to the public... There is only 8 bridges ferries in the world. Then a little patience!

  • I came to stand before this bridge transportable, around is full of paths that lead in and out of the city. I found it out of proportion and out of place. Is still under construction. Once finished it should take people from one part of the River through a cabin. A strange idea and unusual. Also the river has brown waters and it is not at all pleasant. I find it lacking in identity.
