Saint-Nazaire: Boulevard des Apprentis has improved port integration


Opened in July this year, Boulevard des Apprentis has provided a route 2.1 km long which is better suited to the logistical flows of industries located on the port and safer for the 140,000 vehicles that use it each day. The redevelopment has been conceived in agreement with the inhabitants of the district. For example, old concrete tanks will be landscaped to serve as a sound-deadening barrier. A look-out point will offer inhabitants and visitors a view of the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard where cruise ships are built.
