In a water-rich country like the Netherlands, bridges come in all shapes and sizes. All these bridges have a common goal: ensuring that traffic safely reaches the other side.
An important condition is that they remain easily passable under widely varying conditions.
Maintenance is extremely important in this context. Bridges are almost always indispensable. They were created because there is no other way to the other side, or the road to the other side is extremely long. Emergency services use bridges to save time, which can sometimes even be life-saving. This means bridges can be taken out of service only partially or only very briefly.
In addition to fixed bridges, drawbridges are a common sight as well. The maintenance of drawbridges involves additional complex factors. After all, shipping traffic must be able to continue during execution of said maintenance.
