Yeongdodaegyo, also known as Yeongdodari, stands as a bascule bridge situated in Yeongdo, Busan, Republic of Korea. Referred to as Yeongdo Bridge in English, this structure was finalized in 1934, linking the Jung District on the Busan mainland to Yeongdo District on Yeongdo Island, spanning across the southern port of Busan. During the Korean War, it served as a gathering point for individuals seeking lost family and friends. The original drawbridge ceased operating in 1966. Initially considered hazardous in 2003 and nearly slated for demolition, it was ultimately recognized as a historical monument. Following restoration efforts, the drawbridge was reopened on November 27, 2013.
