Living with the Rhone

The banks of the Rhone

Enhancing the concession is a priority for CNR. The developments performed on the banks of the Rhone such as ViaRhôna make it possible to bring the inhabitants of the Rhone Valley back around the river.

The development of spaces for strolling and hiking, angling jetties and laying the ViaRhôna cycle track all demonstrate CNR’s ambition to enhance the banks of the Rhone. Through its Missions in the General Interest, CNR has also made it a priority to attract the neighbouring population to frequent the river banks.
