A new jetty from the coastline to Mont Saint Michel

intro: 

A jetty from the normandy coastline to Mont Saint Michel, designed by Dietmar Feichtinger Archtectes, has recently opened for pedestrian access.

The project replaces an existing causeway producing undesirable build up of sediment, due to limited ability for water flow. the elevation of the bridge way on stilts alleviates this issue, creating a continuous current around the island. the path offers a promenade for visitors, with expansive views to the impressive medieval mountain village and estuary context.
