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

  • Wonderful bridge, great architecture and splendid views..
  • Nice bridge with the view on the national library building.
  • I think it the most modern bridge in Paris. From here to Eiffel Tower along Seine is the best way to run. but if you run or walk, you had better to choose the left side of Seine.
  • Superb book, perfect link between the BnF and the Parc de Bercy.
