Gustave Flaubert Drawing Bridge

The Pont Gustave-Flaubert (Gustave Flaubert Bridge) is a vertical lift bridge over the River Seine at Rouen, Seine-Maritime, Haute-Normandie, France. It officially opened on 25 September 2008 after four years of work.

It is estimated to have cost 60 million euros to build. Initial groundbreaking work on the bridge began in June 2004. The Rouen city council chose the bridge's name on December 15, 2006. The bridge is named after famous 19th century novelist Gustave Flaubert who was born in Rouen.

The bridge is on the connection between the Normandy motorway (A13), via the RN338, A150 and the motorway which connects with the A29 and A28. This link should help relieve the western districts of Rouen while providing the necessary liaison with the economic zone and the port of Rouen.
