Rochefort-Martrou Transporter Bridge is a transporter bridge built between 1898 and 1900 . It is located in Rochefort, Charente-Maritime, Poitou-Charente, France. Crossing the Charente River, it has a maximum height of 66.5 metres and a total length of 175.5 metres. It is a technical invention accomplished by a French engineer : Ferdinand Arnodin. It was abandoned in 1967 in favour of a vertical lift bridge, which has since been demolished. However, it was refurbished by 1994 and is now a historical monument (1976). Crossing on foot or a bicycle is still possible today from April to the end of October.
