Remains of the Connaught Road swing bridge.
The main support member, pivot and operating mechanism have been preserved alongside the modern replacement. The operating mechanism is below gratings in front of the two people stood by the railings and consists of a pair of single acting hydraulic cylinders (one to open and one to close) connected to the bridge by chains and operating on an arc. The mechanism dates from 1880.
