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.
