Trip Report Les Berges: the removal of the Left Bank espressway in Paris

Jump to last reply

Although the project was delayed for political reasons, it only took 5 months (and 75 million euros) to transform the Left Bank expressway into a new promenade for Parisians.

It just opened on June 19th, so people are still discovering it for the first time. In spite of the iffy weather, I went there yesterday and took a number of pictures to show what it looks like: http://tinyurl.com/berges
