The New Dutch Water Line had to protect Holland against external attacks. The line had some vulnerabilities. One of those weak links was the Elst-Dordrecht railway line. In order to defend this point, a small fort was built in Acquoy near the Devendijk. Very special is the still working crane bridge.
