After the renewal of the asphalt and the creation of the markings animations by the artist Inkoj, the various signals have been carried out. The operation is slowly coming to an end with the last alterations and furniture deliveries.

A significant cost for a major project
The money injected into this project, which is part of the Heart of the metropolis project, was injected by the Rouen Normandy metropolis. “First there is the cost of the regulatory boundaries, the route and the facilities, which amounts to 620,000 euros excluding tax, indicates Nicolas Zuili, the deputy in charge of the right bank. Added to this is the cost of Inkoj studies and animation marking for 110,000 euros. This award enabled the work to be carried out by Inkoj and the Kangourou company team.
They worked together at night for seven weeks from June to produce the large frescoes that symbolize the different intersections of the street. This original process, central to the embellishment project, is seen by the City as an important asset for Rouen’s candidacy to become European Capital of Culture 2028.
As usual, the artist has stuffed his frescoes with references. “There will be a QR code in relation to this InkoJ marking to understand the path, what it relates to, etc., announces the deputy. By scanning it, it opens a page to explain the process. A process that could be multiplied in other places in the city. “It’s a way for us to highlight what has been done and what will be done as well. »
