In Toulouse, Eiffage Génie Civil inaugurates the Robert Poujade footbridge

Infrastructures Division

Our teams participated in the inauguration of the Robert Poujade footbridge, formerly Rapas, on June 22, 2024, in the presence of Jean-Luc Moudenc, Mayor of Toulouse and President of Toulouse Métropole, as well as Johnny Duval and Jean-Paul Bouche, neighborhood mayors.

  • Length: 165 m
  • Width: 5 m
  • Asymmetrical cable-stayed footbridge with a single mast reaching 65 m in height
  • Usage: dedicated to soft mobility, pedestrians, and cyclists

This structure harmoniously integrates into the Garonne pathway with its lightweight design, offering an unobstructed view of the historic center of Toulouse and the Pyrenees mountain range in the distance.

For the success of this project, Eiffage Génie Civil relied on the skills and expertise within the Group, including Eiffage Métal, the engineering office Biep, Eiffage Route, and Ævia.

As a committed player in the Toulouse region, the company engaged numerous local partners such as Quartiers Lumières, Citélum, Créasol, LVTec, Entrepose, and Médiaco.

Design-build consortium: Eiffage Génie Civil (lead contractor), Ingérop, Grimshaw, ppa•architectures, and ATP Atelier.
