Does Howrah Bridge open or lift up from middle?

Know for being the gateway to Kolkata and connecting the daily traffic to the Howrah Station, Howrah Bridge is a cantilever bridge and one of the most well-known places to visit in the city. It doesn't open or lift up, and never had any formal opening since its inception, as the bridge wanted to keep away from the attacks of Japanese planes. If you're planning to pay a visit to this iconic bridge, there are several trains from the Indian Railway towards Kolkata.
