Viaduc des Rochers Noirs

Located in the communes of Lapleau and Soursac, this daring structure spans the Luzège gorges at a height of 92 metres. Inaugurated in 1913 by President Poincaré, it was used until 1959 by the "Transcorrézien", the picturesque jalopy that used to criss-cross the countryside from Tulle to Ussel. Warning: the viaduct is closed to road traffic and pedestrians. Together with its partners, the Corrèze department has embarked on conservation and safety work to ensure the survival and enhancement of this edifice. It is due to reopen to pedestrians in September 2024.
Guided tours of one hour for groups and schools are offered by the ASTTRE 19 Association, by prior arrangement. Charges apply.
A Himalayan footbridge below the viaduct links the two banks of the Luzège. Beware: access is very steep (steps and sometimes narrow path on slopes).
