The Viaduc de Passy in Paris was renamed the Pont Bir-Hakeim in 1949, in honour of the action of the Free French Forces at Bir-Hakeim in Libya in 1943.

It is a two-tier railway (Metro) and road viaduct which includes bridges over the River Seine. Now renamed the Pont Bir-Hakeim.

The viaduct links the Metro stations Passy and Bir Hakeim (formerly Grenelle).

For more information and numerous photographs, see Viaduc de Passy.
