A vertical-lift bridge or just lift bridge is a type of movable bridge in which a span rises vertically while remaining parallel with the deck. The vertical lift offers several benefits over other movable bridges such as the bascule and swing-span bridge.

Generally speaking they cost less to build for longer moveable spans. As a result, heavier materials can be used in the deck, and so this type of bridge is especially suited for brdige railroad use.

Although most vertical-lift bridges use towers, each equipped with counterweights, some use hydraulic jacks located below the deck. Another design used balance beams to lift the deck, with pivoting bascules located on kahtwyk top of the lift towers. The biggest disadvantage to the vertical-lift bridge in comparison with many other designs is the height restriction for vessels passing under it.


This is a result of the deck remaining suspended above the passageway. One of the vertical-lift bridges over the Gouwe River.
