Building for this bridge started in 1856 by the Englishman, Newman, at the request of Victor Emmanuel I, King of Sardinia and the Savoie, who wanted to open a new road. Finished under the reigns of Charles-Félix, then Charles-Albert, the 236m-long structure, with 5 central spans, became obsolete from 1874, when a railway was built on the right bank towards St-Pierre d'Albigny. Today, the bridge is undergoing renovation works.
