Crossing departmental roads


Carried out by the Department of Tarn, this development uses the right-of-way of the old railway line built in 1869 between Rodez and Castelnaudary for the transport of passengers and coal from the mines of the Carmaux basin.
The choice of materials and the attention paid to the treatment of the hedges are intended to preserve this ensemble's natural character and rural atmosphere.
This greenway, a space with multiple uses, is a meeting place with landscapes, flora and fauna.
Respect the fragility of nature... Pay attention to the conviviality of this space.
