“This December 15 is an important day, it is the first day of the public inquiry for the application for environmental authorization of the 3e metro line “, launched Jean-Michel Lattes, this December 15, in front of the trade union council of Tisséo.” It is the last legal step for this capital project for the mobilities in the Toulouse agglomeration “, added the president of Tisséo Collectivités and Tisséo Ingénierie.
What impact on animals, trees and water?
This public inquiry will run until January 28, 2022, with a dedicated website
and eight places of consultation and contribution. The investigating commissioners will then submit a report, probably in the spring, and the prefect will make his decision, in the light of this report, to authorize or refuse the environmental authorization. Protected animals, compensation for tree felling, impact on water will be at the center of this public inquiry. “We have particularly worked on these areas, for plantations, we are well above the legal constraints”, assures Jean-Michel Lattes, “we have also taken care of ecological continuity with ecological zones to avoid separate islands”.
5 years of work
The 3rd line will link Colomiers to Labège via Matabiau in 2028. The CLB extended line B to the INP in 2027.
The CLB to Labège in 2027On December 15, the Tisséo union council adopted the preliminary design studies for the Connection of line B (CLB) which will link the current Ramonville terminus to the INP station (National Polytechnic Institute, near the Labège shopping center. ) in the summer of 2027. This station ensured the connection with the 3 e
metro line which will connect the future terminus of Labège La Cadène (station) in 2028. The cost of the CLB has increased by 31 million euros, bringing the overall cost to 227 million euros (including 82 million for the market with Siemens). “It is linked to current economic conditions, the updating of programs and the shift in planning”, according to the president of Tisséo Collectivités. An additional cost which made Thierry Suaud question, on behalf of Murétain: “This is the equivalent of Tisséo’s investments in Murétain over ten years”. Note that the work will require the partial shutdown of line B between Saint-Michel and Ramonville during the summer of 2026 and occasional stops.
