The Belvevere Inclined Plane or Pente d'eau  

The Belvévère Inclined Plane or “The Slide” as it is generally referred to (Pente d'eau), which allows the passage of boats from the top to the lower level of the seven locks which are all that remain of “Les Neuf Ecluses” in one quick, water saving, step. Unfortunately it isn't used very much.
