A spectacular sight on the Nieuwe Maas river! On the 13th of April 1996, witnessed by ten thousand spectators and accompanied by a host of vessels, the pylon of the Erasmus Bridge reached its home in Rotterdam. The pylon was assembled in Vlissingen and transported by ship to Rozenburg, where one of the world's largest crane vessels lifted the pylon onto a platform and transported it to the site for assembly.
