2005 Archive Ghent The Dairy bridge a small metal bridge in background

The Zuivelbrug is a bridge over the Leie in Ghent. The bridge is part of the Zuivelbrugstraat that connects the Kraanlei and the rest of the Patershol via the Meerseniersstraat or the Grootkanonplein to the Vrijdagmarkt.
The name refers to the dairy market that used to be held with the sale of butter, eggs and cheese on the Vrijdagmarkt. The Meerseniersstraat was then called the Suvelsteghe, the bridge was later referred to as the Suvel Bridge.
The first name of the former wooden bridge, however, was from the construction in the 13th century to 1476 the Boudins bridge, to Boudins, who lived in the Suvelsteghe. From 1363 to 1426 the bridge was rebuilt, in stone. The passage of larger ships meant that a swing bridge was installed between 1751 and 1754, which was also adapted and repaired several times. Between 1968 and 1987 the bridge could not open. On July 1, 1987 a new metal swing bridge was inaugurated. In 2013, the plank floor was renewed and the bridge restored by Waterwegen and Zeekanaal
