El-Ferdan Swing Bridge

El Ferdan Railway Bridge, the longest swing bridge in the world at 340 metres, runs from the east of Suez Canal to the west into Sinai, opens most of the time to allow sailing ships to pass in the canal, and closes during passage of trains. It was built as part of a major drive to develop the areas surrounding the Suez Canal.
