It seems likely the City of Geneva will green light the construction of the Mont Blanc footbridge at its session later today.
It was due to be voted on yesterday – but councillors ran out of time.
It will cost CHF 54m and run for 234 meters.
The construction will mean moving a boat landing stage from the Quai Wilson. The plans for that have held up the decision.
Once finished, the sidewalk on the road bridge will be closed and a two-way cycle lane installed.
Provided it's not held up with a referendum, which is deemed unlikely, work could start before the end of the year.
