A footbridge for the Olympics

Infrastructures Division

The Seine-Saint-Denis departmental council has chosen Eiffage to carry out a project that will be emblematic of the 2024 Olympic Games: the L'Île-Saint-Denis footbridge within the Olympic village. 

This 140 m long, 16 m wide mixed-use structure calls on the Group's many skills. The consortium, led by Eiffage Génie Civil's teams in the Paris region, is made up of Eiffage Métal for the steel structure, Eiffage Fondations for the piles, bars and injections under each of the three supports, ETMF for the sheet piling, ÆVIA for the prestressing, AER for operations near the site and Eiffage Énergie Systèmes for the lighting.

The execution studies, entrusted in particular to BIEP, are underway and will allow, as early as July, to build the first bars and to launch the fabrication of the framework, with a view to installing the deck by barge during the summer of 2022.

The achievement of this structure, worth more than €26M, is scheduled for March 2023.
