    History~

    Rochefort-Martrou Transporter Bridge was between 1898 and 1900. It crosses the Charente River and has a maximum height of 66.5metres (218ft) and a total length of 175.5metres (576ft). It was abandoned in 1967 in favour of a vertical lift bridge, which was demolished in 1991 a few months after the opening of a new dual-carriageway road bridge - the Martrou viaduct. The transporter bridge was refurbished by 1994 and is now a historical monument (1976). Crossing on foot or a bicycle is still possible today from April to the end of October.

    After waiting for a car full to disappear, heading up was easy enough and along with having decent weather was another bonus.
    Was an easy one to do and another nice one to chill at the top. This one is not in any town or city so it was a very peaceful bridge especially at night.

    'Bridge RM' I guess for the goons?

    I thought these were fairly unique to the UK, obviously not.
