Die Dérivation

Born at the confluence of the rivers Ourthe and Meuse, Liège still had several small islands 150 years ago. Starting in 1853, large-scale projects were undertaken to channel the waters that crossed the city. That is how the canal called ‘La Dérivation’ was born; it joins the Meuse at the Atlas-V Bridge and forms the eastern end of the island of Outre-Meuse. The banks of La Dérivation were urbanised in the 19th century, and in the 20th its quays were covered with buildings.
