Tower bridge of London is one of best example for flexible bridge. October 1884 that Horace Jones the city Architect in collaboration with John Wolfe Barry offered the chosen design for Tower Bridge. Tower bridge bascules are operating by hydraulics using steam to power the enormous pumping engines. The energy create is store in six massive accumulators, as soon as power is require to lift the bridge, it is always available. The accumulators fed the driving engines, which drive the bascules up and down. The bascules only talk about a minute to rise to their maximum angle of 86 degrees. This type of bridge, we should build at Kandala Port. It is used for saving time.
