I think it would be dangerous and unwise for me to go into too many specifics about how to take down a bridge such as that but I would ask similar questions to Legbreaker's - how much of the bridge do you want to damage or destroy. If the goal is to breach at least part of the span and make it very difficult and expensive to repair, taking down one or both of the two main supports in the river would be the way to go but that would be a major undertaking. You would need many men each carrying alot of weight in tools and explosives.

How about floating a raft or barge down the river, packed with a tonne or two of ANFO? Tie that to a pylon and let it off and it would very likely destroy the pylon and drop the bridge and the prep time at the target would be only seconds or minutes (not including the getaway time).
