In the Metropolis of Lyon, we can quickly cite the case of the cable car when looking for complicated projects whose route promises to be winding.
Bruno Bernard is aware of this, and the expected date of commissioning of the Lyon-Francheville line is gradually moving away from the end of 2025.
To master the specificities of cable transport as much as possible, the president of the Métropole de Lyon is spending three days in Toulouse this week. Bruno Bernard began his trip on Tuesday, leaving his 1st vice-president Emeline Baume to finish chairing the metropolitan council and manage the ubiquitous vote on the referendum of the ZFE.
He then met the mayor of Toulouse and the president of Toulouse Métropole Jean-Luc Moudenc then participated in a plenary meeting of the Group of authorities responsible for transport.
This Wednesday morning, the president of Sytral is going to visit the site of Téléo, the future Toulouse cable car, which is due to welcome its first passengers at the end of the year. Or rather.
Because during this site visit, it was announced to the Toulouse press that the schedule would not be respected because of delays on the building, the worldwide shortage of electronic elements and the difficulty in obtaining administrative authorizations from the prefecture. according to The Dispatch. End of 2021 has turned into the first half of 2022.
Bruno Bernard was therefore in the front row to witness this quack, which is not the first for Téléo. Our colleagues recall that the idea of the Toulouse cable car was born in 2008. And that the works were launched in 2019, to show a first delay due to the staff and parents of high school students who refused to be overflown by the cabins. Not to mention that Tisséo will have cost nearly 20 million euros more than what was initially planned.
So many adventures that Bruno Bernard will therefore have to try not to reproduce in Lyon.
This Thursday, the elected ecologist will end his stay in Occitania with the National Meetings of Public Transport, then fly to Sweden where he will spend four days for a “study trip on the theme of transport”.
