Nieuwe-Wercksbrug – Bridge 63 | Amsterdam

Nieuwe-Wercksbrug (Bridge 63)
The name of bridge 63 comes from the old name for the neighbourhood opposite the Westerkerk. At the time of construction, the Jordaan was known as the Nieuwe Werck. So it could have easily been named Jordaanbrug if it was built now.
The Nieuwe-Wercksbrug is a fixed bridge in Amsterdam centre connecting Westermarkt with Rozengracht. It spans the Prinsengracht near the Oude Westertoren.
For many years various tram and bus lines have crossed the bridge. Until September 1, 1957, three-rail track for the tram was in use here but now the regular tracks are in place and tram lines 13 and 17 have been running over the bridge since 22 July 2018. The day bus has disappeared here, but four night buses still run over the bridge. These are the same public transport lines, which go over the #bridge117 Rozengracht/Lijnbaansgracht.
