Boulevard Circulaire Patrick Devedjian - Retaining wall work

Aug 1, 2022 - Aug 1, 2024

The work on the boulevard Patrick Devedjian, under the control of Paris La Défense, will begin in August 2022. The relocation of the retaining wall was envisaged from the design of The Link project: it will allow the creation of the basement and the main access for deliveries from the tower.

The objective is to move the retaining wall (a wall that allows pressure to be contained to prevent landslides) located between the lower track and the ring road in order to free up the right-of-way under the future tower. Scheduled to take two years, this work will begin this summer and be completed in 2024.

The retaining wall will be demolished over a distance of about 100 meters and shifted to the south of Patrick Devedjian Boulevard.

In 2024, the final configuration on Patrick Devedjian Boulevard in the vicinity of The Link tower will be as follows:

  • Two lanes of traffic on the lower link (as in the initial configuration in 2020, before the work on the project The Link),
  • Two traffic lanes on Patrick Devedjian Boulevard (instead of three today), in line with current and projected traffic,
  • A permanent and more comfortable bicycle path

Several phases are planned from August 2022 to 2024.
