The Beltbrug (bridge 324) connects the tweede Hugo de Grootstraat 

with the Jan van Galenstraat over de Kostverlorenvaart. 

The bridge was designed by the architect Piet Kramer (1881-1961) 

in the style of the Amsterdamse School. 

Today, the bridge is operated remotely and is the 

bridge keeper's house used as a hotel room. 

The bridge is named after the garbage dump that was 

on de Kostverlorenvaart from 1877 to 1919 (now centrale markthallen). 

Next to the Beltbrug is the Buysbrug (1995) a bicycle and pedestrian bridge 

designed by the architects Ben van Berkel (1957) and Coroline Bos (1959). 

Motor storage vessel the Nelly (1964) is 63 meters long and 7 meters wide 

with a tonnage of 816 tons.
