Erasmusbrug, Rotterdam

The Erasmusbrug (Erasmus Bridge) is a cable stayed bridge across the Nieuwe Meuse river, linking the northern and southern halves of the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands. The Erasmusbrug was completed in 1996. The 808 metre long bridge has a 139 metre-high asymmetrical pylon, earning the bridge its nickname of 'The Swan'. Shortly after the bridge opened to traffic in October 1996, it was discovered the bridge would swing under particularly strong wind conditions. To reduce the trembling, stronger shock dampeners were installed.
