The Passerelle Simone-de-Beauvoir (initially known by the provisional name of passerelle Bercy-Tolbiac) is a bridge solely for pedestrians and cyclists across the Seine River in Paris. It is the 37th bridge on the Seine to Paris. It is located between the bridges of Pont de Bercy and Pont de Tolbiac and links up the 12th and 13th arrondissements of Paris. Its nearest Paris Metro station is Quai de la Gare.HistoryThe central span of the bridge is made of steel, weighs, is long and wide. 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. It rejoins the streets on the high bank

  • The Pedestrian-only Passarelle Simone-de-Beavoir, inaugurated in Paris in 2006, over the River Seine, 304m long and free from 190m, connects the public square of the National Library with bercy park. 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!

  • It is a footbridge that is very practical because it connects the 12th and 13th arrondissements of Paris and it is a footbridge only intended for pedestrians. There is no difficulty in packing your suitcase. The big interest of this catwalk is that the view is really beautiful.
