Bridges

Pont Amont

Pont Amont

As the first in the long list of Parisian bridges, from upstream to downstream, the Upstream bridge carries the great loop of the Boulevard Priphrique across the Seine in the East of the Capital. With the Downstream bridge, it is without doubt the largest and the most frequented of the bridges in the city.
It has never actually been named and is strictly devoted to traffic.
Opened in 1969, the Downstream bridge with a total length of 270 m is slightly shorter than its alter ego which, at 312.50, is the longest bridge in Paris.
