Long Description:
Eine Hubbrücke für Radfahrer und Fußgänger überquert unterhalb der Landwehrbrücke die Schwabach. Sie ist notwendig geworden, um im Falle eines kritischen Hochwasserereignisses den Abflussquerschnitt des Bachlaufes nicht zu stark einzuschränken. Die Hubbrücke war der Stadt Schwabach sogar vom Wasserwirtschaftsamt vorgeschrieben worden. Sie wurde im Juli 2015 eingeweiht; bei Hochwasser kann sie 2,80 Meter angehoben werden.

A lift bridge for cyclists and pedestrians crosses below the Landwehr bridge the Schwabach. It has become necessary in order not to restrict the outflow cross section of the stream in case of a critical flood event. The lifting bridge had been prescribed the city Schwabach even by the water management office. It was inaugurated in July 2015; at high tide it can be raised 2.80 meters.
