The Department of Tarn-et-Garonne will contribute nearly 100 million euros to the large South-West railway project. The elected members of the CD 82, meeting this Wednesday in plenary session, have decided.
There are trains that shouldn’t be missed. The Toulouse-Bordeaux high-speed line is one of them, of course. And the Tarn-et-Garonne, which will have the chance to host a station for this LGV which will be located in Bressols on its territory, cannot miss this meeting with history. Gathered this Wednesday, in plenary assembly in Montauban, the departmental advisers reiterated, through the voice of Vice-President Jean-Luc Deprince “the determined support of the Department for the realization of this structuring equipment” and approved the proposal for provisional financial distribution between the communities.
The constant immobility of the ex-mobilized
Tarn-et-Garonne will contribute 97.73 million euros (an effort that will be spread over 40 years), or 2.87% of the overall project valued at 12.8 billion. The deliberation should have been unanimously elected. It was without counting on the group “Le Tarn-et-Garonne first” formed of six ex-Mobilized of the former president Christian Astruc who abstained on this vote after having tabled no less than three amendments which will be all rejected. Enough to attract the wrath of all the other political groups. “It’s surreal to be opposed in one way or another to the LGV, first because we’ve been asking for it for 15 years, and then our future in terms of mobility and demographic growth. and economic development depends on it, ”Jean-Michel Baylet is stepping up to the plate.
Valérie Rabault, the deputy PS, apostrophe Jean-Claude Bertelli, who chairs this group Le Tarn-et-Garonne first: “You beat around the bush, without having the courage to say clearly that you are against the LGV. We agree with the LGV. We don’t want the department to be landlocked. “
On the right, Mathieu Albugues recalls that “his group is very favorable to the LGV; 100 million euros okay, that’s been, but this financial effort will be widely spread over 40 years. Beyond this amount, we must especially see what this LGV will bring back to our department ”. And the mayor RN of Moissac Romain Lopez also sees in the LGV “a great opportunity for our department”.
