In those days the western side of the river Transtiberim, now the district of Trastevere was already inhabited by a Jewish community, and by occasional dwellers such as foreing merchants and tradesmen who came to Rome for business purposes.
Being located next to a river bend, where the water turbulence is stronger, and just past the island, which made the river-bed narrower thus increasing the speed of the current, the bridge was subject to a continuous wear; only two centuries after its making, major restoration works had to be carried out for the first time, under emperor Octavianus Augustus.
On this occasion it was renamed Pons Maximus, to remark its length. However, during the Middle Ages the names of Rome's landmarks changed quite often, and this bridge made no exception, having been referred to with a variety of other names.
One of them was Pons Senatorius "Senators Bridge"following a full restoration carried out at the expense of the Senators, Rome's main administrators, in whose memory a large commemorative plaque had been set there as a tribute, similar to the one now found on Cestius Bridge see The Tiber Island.

This was worth the part left standing its ultimate and most popular name, Broken Bridge.
Over the following years the people kept using it only as a pier for fishing, until a house was built at the mouth of the bridge, actually blocking it see picture on the right. Curiously, in the days of old two more bridges bore the same nickname or its Latin equivalent, Pons Fractus after being damaged; but later in time they were either entirely rebuilt Sixtus Bridge,or they were completely taken down, what happened to Sublicius Bridge, whose scanty remains were removed from the river bed in c.
After over years, the bridge spanned once again from side to side and could be crossed. The vintage picture on the right shows what it looked like in those days.
Very soon, though, its stone structure, which had become too weak to support the heavy metal extension, showed signs of being unsteady.
Now this ruin, covered by weeds sprung from its crevices, which give it a dramatic look, stands in the middle of the river as a living memory of the tremendous power of the Tiber, whose devastating effects, fortunately, have not been seen for a very long time.
