@Walter Hinteler,
Are we talking Bourne Identity for the past two bridges, Walt?

1. Escaping from Berlin police.

2. When the Treadstone guy had to take his jacket off and face east?

@Walter Hinteler,
I don't remember how many hours I've waited at this bridge (especially in the 60's) ...

(Poole Bridge, a bascule bridge in Poole, Dorset, England)

.. but though I've waited here, too, two years ago, the new bridge looks a bit nicer

@raprap,
Had to look up what he solved, but still do not understand what is was about.
Still interesting to know a bridge can be famous for some problem solving.

Until the 50's, an overland tram-line was going between the rocks
