  • Pont à hauban et levant pour permettre le passage des navires les plus hauts sur la rivière Penfeld. Il domine l'arsenal et le port militaire et relie le bas de la rue de Siam au quartier de Recouvrance, en remplacement du pont tournant détruit en 1944 par les bombardements alliés. Magnifique endroit surtout sous un ciel aussi bleu
