à dix jours de sa clôture, la concertation est plutôt un succès
About sixty people participated this Thursday, February 2 in the final exchange. If there are ten days left to pay her civic contribution to the debate (1), the guarantee of consultation Marianne Azario has already mentioned “the quality of mutual listening, the diversity of the topics discussed and transparency”. At the end of the evening, she confided: “In proportion to a project like the metropolitan RER, the consultation was more closely followed. »
A mass of contributions
1,135 people met over the thirty mobile stands, 184 handwritten contributions, 262 online, 147 on the guarantee email, 10,000 visits to the exhibition at the eco-citizen house in Bordeaux: Marianne Azario will have something to grind to report back. “This project is a solution in a bundle of others”, repeated the president of Bordeaux Métropole Alain Anziani (PS), responding to recurring criticism of “the gadget” that would be the gondolas in view of the overall congestion of the agglomeration. .
The mayors of Cenon and Lormont, Jean-François Egron and Jean Touzeau (PS), joined by the Bordeaux resident Pierre Hurmic (EELV), once again defended a virtuous means of transport (electric), fast, quickly integrated (2028), as well as a new link between the shores which, after the tram almost twenty years ago, will continue to open up the popular districts of the hillside and serve its many educational, medical, cultural and sports facilities.
Unesco and ring road
The questions raised a variety of issues. Is the attendance potential displayed between 9,000 and 18,000 people per day very rational when the Toulouse cable cars, put into service in May 2022, with hospital and university on the route, are at 8,000? Is the Unesco label threatened by the nine proposed routes? “They absolutely have to be compatible,” says Pierre Hurmic. Why not take this cable car to the other side of the ring road? “Too much urban fabric to fly over,” replies Mathieu Karcher, project director at the Métropole. “Relay parks are to be built there and shuttles must be set up,” adds Jean Touzeau.
Ten more days to talk about cabins, cables, cost, efficiency, aesthetics. The consultation will be completed legally in May: it is from this month that the elected metropolitan officials decide on the technology and the route of the gondolas.
