The Pont Chaban-Delmas (Chaban-Delmas Bridge) is now part of the identity of Bordeaux although it was built recently in 2013; it was inaugurated by the Mayor of Bordeaux, Alain Juppé and the French President.


This is a lifting bridge which enables big ships to sail into the heart of Bordeaux opposite the 'Miroir d'Eau (water mirror).  Its name "Chaban-Delmas" is in honour of Jacques Chaban-Delmas, a former French Prime Minister and former Mayor of Bordeaux.
