Designed by the Austrian firm Dietmar Feichtinger Architectures, which also designed the Mont-Saint-Michel footbridge, this 7-meter wide footbridge was designed as a partially covered “walkway” to open up the Pommeraies neighbourhoods, Pillery and Vines. Accessible to people with reduced mobility and bikes, it will also facilitate circulation within the PEM.
