The transformation of Lyons decided by Napoléon 3rd led to the establishment of two large new streets through the old fabric of the center of the city between 1853 and 1860. Several results were aimed at, notably the extension of the business center, the embellishment of the city, sewers and drinking water in every building. Another scope was to suppress the threat of insurrection by the workers, especially the silk weavers. This was solved by the transfer of 30 000 inhabitants to an area on the left bank of the River Rhône.
