Pont Jacques Chaban Delmas

 
 

Modern and elegant, the highest lift bridge in Europe is in Bordeaux

An architectural feat, the Jacques Chaban-Delmas bridge is a fine example of modern technical know-how Its graceful shape can be seen as a continuation of the quays and fits in perfectly with its surroundings. The bridge is a very successful combination of technological prowess and aesthetics. It confers a very welcome modern touch to the city's urban development.

Located between the Pont d’Aquitaine and the Pont de Pierre, this is the fifth bridge over the Garonne. 575 metres long and 77 metres high, it is the tallest lift bridge in France, and even in Europe!

When night falls, the bridge is illuminated and constitutes yet another beautiful facet of the Port of the Moon, to the delight of Bordelais and photographers. The blue colour of the pylons corresponds to high tide, whereas the green indicates low tide.

The bridge is not to be missed during your trip to Bordeaux. We suggest discovering it during a night-time walk along the quays. And please don't hesitate to share your photos on social networks!
