What time does the Han River bridge spin?

Because the Han River Bridge can rotate 90 degrees at its main axis, people call it the 'spinning bridge'. The middle of the bridge will split in two and rotate around the axis along the river's flow, to open a new door for large ships to pass. Since the inauguration, the rotating hours of the Han River Bridge have been changed a number of times. Previously, the bridge would be at 1 am - 4 am daily to cater for waterway transport services. After that, the Han River Bridge was turned at 0 am - 1h two days of weekends. This is to improve the service for tourists.

The Han River Bridge can rotate 90 degrees around its axis.
However, in recent times, to be able to serve tourists better, the city of Da Nang has adjusted the hours of Han River Bridge. Specifically, from Monday to Friday, the bridge will rotate according to the previous schedule. That is, opening the bridge at 1 o'clock and closing the bridge at 2 o'clock. Vehicles will be banned 15 minutes before the bridge is turned on to make preparations. However, if a large boat passes by, the bridge will be closed at 4pm that day. Particularly on Saturday and Sunday, the bridge will spin earlier from 23h - 24h of the same day. This has created favorable conditions for visitors to arrange a time to see this famous rotating bridge in Danang.
