Tilting Lock system ends traffic congestion by bridge openings. Is not going up but the ship goes down! Watch the video…
Tilting Lock invented by Dutch engineers at Royal HaskoningDHV, designed for a major road bridge with no need to open because ships ‘submerge’ under it.
Major bridges like the Zeeland Bridge in the Netherlands, that move to allow sailing yachts to pass beneath them, are causing daily traffic congestion when they open for the boats, peaking during the summer season.
To resolve this problem, Royal HaskoningDHV has invented the Tilting Lock “designed to allow boats to ‘submerge’ under the bridge instead of it opening for them to pass under.”
