Extension of the Cambodia’s pedestrian bridge in Paris

After several months of closure, pedestrians were once again able to take the footbridge of Cambodia connecting Gentilly in the Val-de-Marne to the Cité Internationale Universitaire park in the 14th arrondissement.

 

Many works have been made on this structure dating back to the 1950s. The pedestrian bridge has been extended by a metallic structure on the south side to span the Avenue Paul Vaillant Couturier, in the town of Gentilly.

 

It has also been created an access staircase south side. Finally, two lifts were placed on either side of the structure to allow the access to people with reduced mobility.

Moreover, this project was supported by the city of Paris to promote clean travel. The Cambodia footbridge is considered a “green hyphen” within the north-south ecological corridor. It is now an ideal route for Parisian pedestrians and cyclists.
