JDN group - Rives Ardentes

Successful installation of second pedestrian bridge 'Passerelle des Plaisanciers' for the Rives Ardentes eco-district in Liège.

Last week, on Wednesday 13 December 2023, the consortium of Jan De Nul Group, Willemen Groep and CIT Blaton successfully installed the 'Passerelle des Plaisanciers' for Rives Ardentes. With a length of 38 metres, a width of 3.2 metres and a weight of approximately 60 tonnes, the pedestrian bridge was assembled in one piece in the workshops of CSM Steelstructures and brought to the site with an exceptional night transport. Two cranes of 400 and 700 tonnes respectively were used to build the bridge.

This pedestrian bridge is the second to be installed in the new Rives Ardentes eco-district on the 25 hectare Coronmeuse site in Liège. These footbridges span the 'Darse de Meuse' and connect the parks, residential areas and facilities of Rives Ardentes, not only with the neighboring Saint-Léonard district, but also with the center of the city of Liège.

Follow the project

As the complete infrastructure works and landscaping have not yet been completed, the ‘Passerelle des Plaisanciers’ will not be accessible until after the official inauguration of the Rives Ardentes site, which should take place in spring 2024.
