Twin Sails Lifting Bridge
This landmark structure is the first bridge of its type to be built in the the world. Its unique triangular-shaped lifting leaves reflect Poole's proud maritime and industrial heritage. When the bridge is up, the two lifting leaves symbolise the sails of a yacht and offer different views from every position along the quayside, from a sailing symbol to the spire of a cathedral. In its lowered position, the bridge offers stunning views across the natural beauty of Holes Bay.
The Twin Sails bridge is attracting attention from around the world and its iconic structure is raising the profile of Poole as a destination of choice for both visitors and businesses. The Twin sails Bridge represents Poole's ambition of being a successful 21st century town. Not only is the bridge providing reliable journeys between the town centre and Hamworthy and improving access to the port, it has opened up one of the largest sites in the South West for development.
Come and take a look at the Twin Sails Bridge and enjoy the spectacle as the two world-class "twin sails" are raised and lowered.
