The bascule bridge was constructed in 1917 by the companies Daydé and Eiffel, to allow the railway access to the old naval shipyard site located at the other end of the port.

Registered with the supplemental inventory of Historical Monuments (industrial heritage) since 1987, the bascule bridge soon became a panoramic view-point from which one may admire one of the most beautiful harbours of Europe.
