I’ve seen a few pictures of this beautiful Gothic bridge and was rather looking forward to seeing this landmark of Tournai. I get there, what the deuce!? There’s current construction working going on to widen the central arch. The bridge is no more. Only the two towers at either bank, plus the vertical supports in the river remain. No chance of getting a picture perfect shot now.

Based on the signage behind the fencing, this is being “disassembled” so it can be reconstructed better. The central portion of the bridge appears to have been demolished to remove the more modern construction that was done to repair the bridge after it was blown up in WW II to stop a German advance. There is obvious remnants of rebar on the central island. The original towers on both banks have been secured to prevent any collapse. There was no firm completion date on the signs, but I’d give them two years at least to complete this work.

Tournai has butchered this historical structure, a shameful disregard of it's heritage. Won't be visiting ever again.

This is an attractive and interesting bridge, and somehow the passage of huge modern barges underneath its ancient central arch somehow adds poignancy to the longevity of the structure. It is undoubtedly one of the historic highlights of Tournai and, as such, I share the views of previous reviewers that more should be done re its renovation.

How many structures do we now erect that will last hundreds of years? Not many. I walked much of this canal looking for the other bridges noted on a landmark, but this was the only one I could find that remained. Still, it is amazing how well this structure has survived. Especially with all of the barge traffic.
