The Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam is open for car traffic again. That is earlier than expected, because yesterday it was estimated that the bridge would remain closed until this afternoon.
The Erasmus Bridge was closed yesterday morning when a cable broke while going down the bridge. Part of the steel overhead wires for trams ended up on the road.
The bridge had previously been cleared for cyclists and pedestrians.
The trams do not yet cross the bridge. High ships also have to circumnavigate, writes Rijnmond.
