This is a movable suspension bridge. In order to let boats pass underneath, the cables can be pulled up while the pylons incline away from the deck and the deck curves sharply upwards. The maximum longitudinal slope in that state is 45 degrees. Even though the bridge could theoretically still be used at that stage, it is recommended to leave the bridge beforehand.
