Some Historical picture From Veresk Bridge during building

The Veresk bridge (Varisk) is a bridge in Iran. It was constructed mostly by Austrians before World War II by leadership of an engineer named Walter Aigner, constructed during the reign of Reza Shah. It is located in the Veresk district of Savadkuh County, in Mazandaran province. During World War II, it was known as the Pol-e Piroozi ("The bridge of victory"). The bridge stands at 110 m (360 ft) tall and its arch measures 66 m (217 ft) long. The bridge serves the Trans-Iranian Railway network in Northern Iran. The Veresk bridge in Iran connects the railway between Tehran and the Caspian Sea region. It is located in Mazandaran’s Veresk district of Savad Kooh county, 85 kilometers south of Ghaemshahr and connects two of the mountains in the Abbas Abad region. The bridge is one of the masterpieces of the Danish engineering firm Kampsax, (consisting of mostly German and Austrian engineers) serving the Trans-Iranian Railway network in Northern Iran. The construction of this bridge included craftsmen of many nationalities, including many Italian.Wikipedia
