ou pont du 22 août 1944

— The "New Bridge", or the Bridge of August 22, 1944 —

Prévu dès le XVIIIe siècle, dans le prolongment des lices, ce pont ne sera réalise qu'un siècle plus tard sous le second Empire pour permettre à la route royale de franchir le Tarn. Achevé en 1866, deux ans après le pont de chemin de fer qui lui fait pendant, it témoigne du développement des moyens de communication à l'époque industrielle.
Il porte tour à tour les noms de pont Napoléon, pont de Strasbourg, pont Neuf avant de devenir le pont du 22 août 1944, en souvenir de passage d'une colonne allemande dans la ville en 1944 et des combats qui s'y déroulerent.
[English]
The "New Bridge", or the Bridge of August 22, 1944
Planned in the 18th Century as an extension to the fortified wall, this bridge was constructed a century later during the second Empire (185201870) to allow the high road to cross the Tarn.
Completed in 1866, two years after a matching railway bridge, it demonstrated how means of communication developed during the industrial age.
It bore the names Napoleon Bridge, Bridge of Strasbourg, and New Bridge (pont Neuf) before finally becoming the Bridge of August 22, 1944, a name chosen to commemorate the passage of a German column through the city in 1944 and the fighting that ensued thereafter.
