Strange Red Bridge

Google Street View

Here is an unusual shaped red coloured bridge in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Known as the "Red Bridge" (Dutch: Rode Brug), it is a small narrow draw bridge on the water channel between Anton Geesinkstraat and the Loevenhoutsedijk. The bridge built in 2009 is replacement of an earlier bridge which was also red.

Because of its proximity to the Zandpad - Red Light area in Utrecht, many feel that its red colour is symbolic of the activities in the area. As a matter of fact Zandpad is also commonly referred as the Red Bridge.
