Infrastructure branch Making all the difference

2007

Inaugurated in spring 2007, the new left bank of the River Rhône in Lyon has been equipped with a 5 km green lane for non-motorized vehicle traffic and pedestrians exclusively. 

Garden islands planted with native grasses and clumps of trees, skateboard and rollerblade tracks, playgrounds for small children, floating restaurants, cafe-théâtre and nightclubs, a boules area and volleyball pitch and terraced stands line this pedestrian and cycle lane which links Gerland Park in the south of the city with the Cité Internationale in the north.
