Working as a network, those new landscapes are linked by «green fingers».
The cars traffic being reduced, these will placed on some existing roads, operating a mutation as green bicycle paths.
The city of Lyon having a strong rental bikes network -Velo’v-, each old filling stations have at proximity a Velo’v station. For exceptions without an existing Velo’v station, a new bicycle rental station will created.

«Green fingers» linking differents stations give to city a bicycle paths network, creating a new type of urban park, a urban fragmented park. They represent more than 10% of the existing paths (existing : 300km, green fingers : 35km).

At urban-wide the project is acting as acupuncture regenerating some ungraceful places, became uneeded, in order to inject a new landscape made by
signs and traces of what there was in place, nature and inhabitants.
Then those spaces reactivated, project is establishing links between them so as to form a whole making city.
