at Sytral, the mayor of Tassin submits 12,000 letters from residents demanding the metro E to Santa Claus
It is at the foot of an ecological tree that the mayor of Tassin-la-Demi-Lune visited this Wednesday afternoon.
Pascal Charmot had taken with him bags containing 12,000 letters from residents of his commune. And he placed them in front of the tree installed at the Sytral headquarters in the 3rd arrondissement of Lyon.
All these requested letters sent to Santa Claus to bring the E metro line to Tassin, promised by Gérard Collomb in 2014 and which has returned to the table of the current consultation of the Greens metro plan, alongside other projects of extension of existing lines.
Metro E, estimated at 1.5 to 2 billion euros, would link Alaï to Part-Dieu, serving the heights of the 5th arrondissement. Many elected officials, and therefore residents, of the west of Lyon believe that it is essential, in particular to fight against traffic congestion at the entrances to Lyon.
“With daily traffic flows before the health crisis of 47,000 vehicles / day at the Clock Crossroads, 50,000 at the Liberation crossroads, 110,000 vehicles under the Fourvière tunnel and 150,000 by TEO, the city of Tassin la Demi-Lune is particularly affected by road traffic problems, congestion and air pollution and noise pollution., announces Pascal Charmot. Just like the feedback from our fellow citizens during this new phase of consultation, everything is ready in the West Lyonnais to give life to this Metro so long awaited by our fellow citizens “.
Ten days before December 25, will the EELV president of Sytral, Bruno Bernard, have fun reading all this mail? And above all, will he grant the wishes of the Tassilunois? Because to get a metro line at Christmas, being good will not be enough.
