Lots of bridges in Holland raise, it is after all the country of canals. Perhaps you mean the really big one on a major trunk road. If so, I've seen it and driven across it, but not seen it raise.

In England we have a quite well known lifting bridge in London which I've rowed under, and a less well known one in Coot Club country on the site of a big railway swing bridge. This one I've had lifted for me a couple of times (causing impressive tailbacks on the major road) which crosses here.
