Facts Span: 40 m

The footbridge is located on the axis of the former Banque Nationale building and is part of a larger project redeveloping the banks of the river Sambre at Charleroi.

The footbridge has a 40-meter span and is 13.5 meters wide. Its underside is clad with stainless steel and wooden decking on top. Crossing the river, it creates a kind of square suspended above the water, ideal for various open-air activities.

The footbridge consists of a reinforced concrete abutment with an approximately 5-metre cantilever that extends and provides access to the apron on the Porte des Arts side. On the station side, the footbridge rests on the wall of the existing quayside.
