Rolling Bridge

October 13, 2012

A little off topic here, but recently I was in London and saw the amazing rolling bridge. This is a really neat feat of mechanical engineering.

The bridge uses hydraulics to roll up on itself so a boat can go into the waterway and turn around or stop and unload cargo.
