While the mayor of Toulouse inaugurates, this afternoon, the renovation of the Garonne quays, residents denounce night-time nuisances, noise and dirt …
The inauguration, this afternoon, by the mayor of Toulouse, Jean-Luc Moudenc of the restoration of the Garonne quays, from the Saget wall to the Henri-Martin promenade, may be a little agitated. Sign and megaphone in hand, Philippe and Benoît Pistre fully intend to “hit a scandal” to once again alert elected officials to the nuisances and other incivilities experienced daily by residents of the Garonnette district, who live in the descent. of the Fish Market. “It has become impossible,” he explains. It has been years since every night a drunken population has been squatting at night under the arch of the Pigasse bridge and the adjoining square. As there is good acoustics, the night owls crank up the decibels and the music resonates until no time. ”… And it’s not just sound! Once gone, all these little people leave behind order trucks and other broken glasses.
“It’s disgusting, there are no other words, gets carried away Philippe Pistre. They piss everywhere, it even attacks metallic street furniture ”. He who has made himself the mouthpiece of the other inhabitants of the district no longer knows which way to turn. “I wrote ten times to the town hall, without result, he continues. When we call AllôToulouse, we are told that there are not enough patrols, that the municipal police cannot come. As for the national police, I was told that they only moved if there was blood! “. Failing to be heard, Philippe Pistre is determined to challenge Jean-Luc Moudenc and the mayor of the district Julie Escudié to finally make his cause heard.
“Letting such a place in the historic center deteriorate is not good for the image of the Pink City”, he pleads. Highlighting the paradox of the renovation of the Garonne docks when a few meters away, food and alcohol waste litter the passage and the surroundings of the anti-flood system. There is no doubt that this exercise of direct democracy will find an attentive ear with elected officials. Do it yourself !
