Bicycle and Pedestrian Way

Outline of Bicycle and Pedestrian Way

Nishi-Seto Expressway accommodates a bicycle and pedestrian way in the long-span bridge portions, although the expressway is a fully-access-controlled highway, about 60km long, which connects Onomichi in Honshu with Imabari in Shikoku,

Pedestrians, bicycles and motor-bikes (the engine displacement is 125cc or less) should use the way for passing the bridges.

Commuters can use the way and tourists can pass long-span bridges on foot or by bicycles.

Those who would like to recognize the actual huge structures in Nishi-Seto Expressway, or who want to discover newly attractive experiences are recommended that they pass the bridges by using the bicycle and pedestrian way.
