Like Grand Paris, the president of the regional federation of public works Christian Surget, defends the idea of a Grand Bordeaux that disseminates on a regional scale
Duplicating Greater Paris in Bordeaux is the great idea of Chistian Surget, president of the regional public works federation. “This is on a different scale the model we have known with Euratlantique. But at the regional level. Greater Paris had Christian Blanc (native of Talence, editor’s note). We need the same chosen one, a man or a woman piloting a prospective mission. Who listens, sees and draws a horizon for 2050. Good ideas abound, it remains to give them meaning and articulation. It is a question of drawing several scenarios. And choose the one that makes the most sense with an economic vision, of planning, with a central player overhanging, detached from contingencies. Greater Paris is already happening because there was this fundamental phase which is not only linked to politics. Greater Paris is 30 billion invested and 100 billion induced. Let us take on someone, a great coordinator to invent the future, ”he says.
Because there are, according to him, many things to be reconsidered: “The star-shaped organization of our country that we find even in the design of our transport. The idea of the metropolitan RER is great, because it promotes the idea of a belt path. We have been talking about it for twenty years. It is time to think about a new major planning phase ”. Which according to him must give another place to Bordeaux.
Land use planning
” This is how Bordeaux enlightened the region, and the region should not be built without Bordeaux. But be careful, we should not put everything in Bordeaux, but put Bordeaux everywhere! This implies that it is easy to access… There is an imperative that Mont-de-Marsan, Dax, Angoulême must live with. And that employment is close to where people live. We faced a challenge of land reorganization. With this imperative that we can go quickly and smoothly from one point to another. We have to grow the blackberries and repay what we take for granted, which borders on a real territorial egoism ”.
