A reincarnation of the old Tram Bridge that stood here most of the twentieth century, but became derelict and has unfortunately been demolished. This impressive bridge returns in twenty first century fashion. Just like its predecessor the New Tram bridge has a fascinating moving mechanism, however with the technology of this age. A beautiful, transparent, logic and elegant shape and a thorough, simple and honest steel structure. The overall aspect is not just a nice profile, but also a gate through which slow traffic enters or leaves the center of Assen.
