This is a unique pair of bridges. One is a steel arch footbridge that crosses the river at a perpendicular angle and leads to the Vienna Main Customs Office Building (Wiener Hauptzollamt). Below this bridge is a steel pony truss bridge which carries the U-Bahn which emerges from the underground to cross the river at a heavy skew before returning into the continuation of the underground subway tunnel.
