Presentation

This art work built on the Marseille Miramas railway line was commissioned in October 1915 at the opening of the line.
With a length of 943 m, it crosses the Caronte canal located between the pond of Berre and the Mediterranean Sea.
Dynamite in August 1944 by the Germans, it is rebuilt almost identically between 1952 and 1954.

By opening, the bridge releases a navigable channel 43 m wide. When closed, the movable span is 23 m high allowing the passage of large boats.
