History (Construction - Current year) - Bridge open - Views: Detail - Interior - Distant - Night
English: The Tower Bridge open for ships. The bascules are raised around 1000 times a year. River traffic is now much reduced, but it still takes priority over road traffic. Today, 24 hours' notice is required before opening the bridge. There is no charge for vessels. Since 2000, a computer system controls the raising and lowering of the bascules remotely.
