The footbridge at La Rochelle station is part of the urban development project around the station which, from the square, reconsiders the development of the city as a logistic hub for the region.
In plan, the footbridge presents a L-shape with a 36 meters long ramp turning in a 155 meters long footbridge crossing the below railways, with the longest span measuring 48 meters. The deck has a variable section to deliver a fine structure varying along its length to create movement and lightness, and it is supported by eleven bifurcated steel columns. Part of the realization, the footbridge includes a protective roof.
The footbridge creates an urban link between the centre of the city and the developing neighbourhoods on the other side of the station, offering a place of nature and connection in.
