The Herbettes Aqueduct (French: Pont-Canal des Herbettes) is one of several aqueducts on the Canal du Midi. In Toulouse France, it carries the canal over a four-lane highway in a metal trough. The trough has been colorfully painted underneath. The aqueduct is about 2 km (1.2 mi) from the Port Saint-Sauveur.[2]

The structure is made of steel, is 74 m (243 ft) long, and was completed in 1983.[3]
