- Year built: 1855
- Style of construction: Double cast-iron drawbridge
- Architect: G.N. Itz
The Damiatebrug over the mouth of the Wolwevershaven was built in the 19th century to a design by the cityarchitect G.N. Itz, who designed most of the bridges in Dordrecht. Drawbridges were initially made of wood, but from 1837 cast iron was also used in the Netherlands. The bridge was therefore originally made of the easily formed cast iron and hammered iron. In the same year, however, it had to be rebuilt because, two weeks after it was commissioned, one of the balances had collapsed. The use of different types of iron was still in its infancy, so the cast iron was replaced with wrought iron to keep the bridge functioning properly. The bridge has a clearance of 14.5 metres.
