Only one elevator of the two is in operation and the other one regularly breaks down, which isn't such a disaster because the canal is exactly a major artery.

So basically, it's exactly the same as the Anderton Boat Lift in Cheshire, only 127 years later and a hell of a lot more expensive!

its not useless, it attracts silly touristas, presidente!

I like the Falkirk one best, its got curves, its as sexy as architecture can get. Sexier than the skyscraping pickle.
