|September 2016 (45° 45' 26.00" N 4° 49' 35.00" E) Passerelle Paul Couturier|
A few hundred yards upstream from last week's Pont Kitchener-Marchand are the few remains of the Pont Ainay (by the stairs along the Quai Fulchiron). This arch bridge was demolished by the retreating German army and never rebuilt. A few hundred yards further upstream is the Passerelle Paul Couturier (formerly called Saint-Georges), a pedestrian suspension bridge.
Structurae they referred to an article in Bridge Design and Engineering that showed a complete rehabilitation for the bridge (by Freyssinet in 1999). Therefore, I would assume that the bridge is currently getting minor repairs or just being repainted.
