    The Enneus Heerma Bridge (Dutch: Enneus Heermabrug) is a bridge in the Netherlands which connects the new urban district of IJburg, built on seven artificial islands in IJ Lake, with the isle of Zeeburg, a borough on the eastern edge of Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands.

    Made of steel, with a length of 230 meters, a width of 38 meters, and a height of 26 meters, the suspended deck of the bridge serves to carry a traffic road and a light rail (tram) line. It is the main connection between IJburg and the A10 and can be reached by tram 26 from Amsterdam Centraal Station.

    Completed in 2001, the bridge was designed by Grimshaw Architects. The classic gables of Amsterdam’s canal houses inspired the arches and lateral gables and the wavy patterns refer to water. The segmented appearance is based on the skeleton of a crab. The shallowness of the water at the bridge site made it impossible to use floating cranes to lift the pre-assembled arches of the bridge into position during construction. The problem was solved by using pontoons and crawler cranes.
