The span was constructed by the Eiffel company in the Alsace and was transported by canal, the North Sea, the English Channel and French rivers to its destination, crossing Paris on a barge on November 30, 2005. It was hoisted in place in two hours on January 29, 2006, around three o'clock in the morning.The passerelle is characteristic of its time and distinguishes itself from the three other footbridges that already cross the Seine in Paris . The geometry of its members reduces shearing. This is a lens-shaped structure. Its rotational anchorage on its supports brings its structural height back down to the different levels of the quais at either end. Its five crossings pass over the river without supports in water.

Architectly, the walkway has different wavy levels, which ensures its extraordinary beauty, harmony and uniqueness. Simone (Paris, 1908-1986), existentialist philosopher, intellectual, political activist, feminist and French writer, certainly deserves this tribute!
