By 2014, the shuttles will be going to the Mont-Saint-Michel on a new causeway (length 1.085 meters) followed by a bridge (760 meters over water) before landing on an earthplateforme at the bottom of the mount (120 meters). It’s only a few hours per year, during very high tides, that the Monument will be completed surrounded by the water. Starting in 2011, these works are planned to be completed by 2014.

At the moment one hundred of 142 piles are already set in the bay. The prefabrication of one part of the deck in concrete is on the way. 100 pieces from 257 are produced. The putting on bridge starts in mid-November and will last for 4 months.
