The Rendsburg High Bridge is a 460ft (140m) span Transporter Bridge and is unique in design as it is two bridges in one - a railway crosses the bridge on the top span and the gondola is suspended below.
The gondola was destroyed in a collision with a ship in 2016, but is scheduled to be replaced in 2021.
