Gustave Eiffel is most famous for his contributions to the building of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Statue of Liberty in New York City.

This street is named in honour of Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923), a French civil engineer who made his name building various bridges for the French railway network, most famously the Garabit viaduct.
