Egerton Bridge (2)
This is an example of a bascule bridge. When it is raised, it is counterbalanced by the large weight shown on the left hand side. In this particular example, the weight is evenly distributed by the rolling action of the bridge (see bottom left hand side). Visit LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) for access details.
