16th bridge over the Rhône and first engineering structure in construction for 30 years in the Capital of the Gauls.
This radiating arch bridge will be like a new “Lyon Gateway” on the Rhône. It will perform two functions, carrying the T1 tramway and enabling “soft” circulation.
The bridge will be 260 metres long. Next to the tramway platform there will be a cycle track in both directions, a wide pavement and a viewing point equipped with urban furniture to make the most of this unique location at the joining of the Rhône and Saône rivers.
