Template:Unreferenced thumb thumb Podul Grant (Grant Bridge) is a bridge for motorway and lightrail in Bucharest, Romania. It is named after Effingham Grant, the British consul in Bucharest in the mid-19th century. Initially, the bridge was made of steel, and opened in 1910. In the late 1970s, it was remade from concrete. Since then, a number of maintenance and modernisation projects have been executed.

The bridge is passed by a tram way (line 41), which was upgraded while Traian B?sescu was mayor, becoming the first lightrail line in Bucharest.

Today, the bridge connects Crânga?i Square with Turda Street, crossing West-East over Giule?ti Boulevard, the railroads and Grivi?a Boulevard. It is one of the symbols of the football club Rapid Bucure?ti, its stadium being located right by the bridge.
