The Willems Bridge, designed by architect A. Veerling, used to dominate the Rotterdam skyline. For a long time, it was the most important connection over the Meuse river.
Nowadays, Rotterdam’s infrastructure counts several major connections. The Maastunnel is a tunnel over one kilometer long and dates from 1942. The new symbol of Rotterdam is the Erasmus Bridge that opened in 1996.
