Green Lane ? what is it?
The Green Lane also called the V91 is more than 30 kms of path along the river Dordogne for an easy walk or a long bike trail, from Mouleydier to Gardonne via Bergerac harbour.
Worked started in 2017 and is due to be finished in 2021.

CAB website : https://goo.gl/QHFAyx CAB FB page : https://goo.gl/3GPymQ In Bergerac, around the harbour, the Green Lane has led to some traffic disruptions – closure of the Salvette Quay till next friday (28 /03/19). Bergerac City Hall advised drivers instead to use the ring roads. A temporary one-way system will be then implemented till the completion of the work (01/06/19) from Bellegarde to the new bridge.
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of the work in progress (Thanks to @natrphoto) !
Can’t wait to see the final result in June!
