The five-kilometre long green route crosses through Thônex, Chêne-Bourg, Chêne-Bougeries, and Cologny in Switzerland, but it also provides a direct link to Annemasse in France.

 

The cycle path runs parallel to a footpath, making it a popular place for your commute and a leisurely stroll. This green route is partly located on the railway cut-and-cover where Léman Express trains now travel.

Did you know ?

Eaux-Vives Station was, until its closure in 2011, an SNCF station on Swiss territory. The building, owned by the city of Geneva, housed an SNCF sales point allowing local residents to buy their train tickets to France without having to go to the Geneva station or the city centre.

The first station in Eaux-Vives was built in 1887 and a year later linked the Eaux-Vives district to Annemasse by train. The temporary building was initially constructed of wood, but was replaced by a permanent building until the station was closed in November 2011 and then destroyed in 2017.

From the end of 2011, as the old station closed, it made way for construction work to begin on the new underground station, at a depth of 16 metres. It is the core of an urban planning project within the framework of the PAC, or coordinated development perimeter, which will lead to a total restructuring of the area.

The Genève-Eaux-Vives stop was inaugurated on 15 December 2019 for the Léman Express commissioning.

Ateliers Jean Nouvel, in charge of the architectural concept for the new CEVA stations, followed the glass brick road. Although they are all different in shape and size, the stations have one thing in common: their glass bricks. They can be easily identified. Used as a wall, floor or roof element, these bricks allow natural light to filter through.

Mire is unique as it focuses on video creations on a transport line. It's the first time that such a structure hosts varied programmes over a ten-year period. Indeed, it is a form of evolutionary building integrating images within the station.
