La Vie à Lyon

Living, learning and loving in Lyon !

Grande rue de poo…

We’re getting a makeover. Well not us exactly, but our main street, the Grande Rue d’Oullins. The Grande Rue, although a typically narrow French street, is a major thoroughfare and connects Lyon with its south-western suburbs. There are at least 5 major bus lines, not including school buses, plus the numerous people who drive it every day.

Pictured, from left to right:

The Grande Rue in November 2013 – yep, purdy…

The Grande Rue now – outbound lane and bus stops closed, citybound traffic only, detours galore, no parking, frustration and tooting level even higher than normal…

It’d better be good !

Bisous !

PS. Apologies to those who received the first few sentences of this post – yes, published when I should’ve saved !
