Brisavoine talked about this project few months ago:

Quote:
'France's most expensive road': Paris pays €1.7 billion for Réunion highway

The Telegraph
9 April 2014

Government says new road on Indian Ocean island's coast is a necessity but the cost has raised eyebrows at a time of economic crisis


Taking seven years to complete, the motorway will link capital Saint-Denis to Réunion’s port and will be built on columns rising out of the ocean

At a time of economic crisis, infrastructural projects are being shelved by governments across the planet.

Not so however for French authorities, who are set to sign a cheque for a staggering €1.66 billion (£1.31 billion) to pay for the construction of a 7.8-mile stretch of coastal motorway on the Indian Ocean island of Réunion.

Dubbed the "most expensive road in France,” the price of building the new highway works out at nearly £110,000 per metre.

As the price suggests, this is no ordinary road. There will be three lanes in each direction and it will be built to withstand 90mph hurricane winds and waves of up to ten metres.

Taking seven years to complete, the motorway will link capital Saint-Denis to Réunion’s port and will be built on columns rising out of the ocean.

Island president Didier Robert has described the project as an “absolute necessity,” while local economist Jean-Phillippe Pierre said it will bring the territory “into the 21st century”.

this interchange in Balata will help all the citizens in Cayenne urban area. It's the most important rond-point, linking Cayenne, Matoury, and the west of French Guiana.

Another great project is the new National Road 2 (RN 2). The works will be placed between the New Viaduct of Balata and the Rond-Point of PROGT (more than 2 km will be transformed).

The works will start in 2015 and will finish in 2018.

Some news from the Médipôle of Koutio, in the northwestern suburbs of Nouméa, of which Brisavoine talked last year (see a copy of his post below). It is the largest and most modern hospital in New Caledonia (and in the Pacific east of Australia).

The structures have risen nicely since last year. This (small) picture is the most recent one. The Médipôle looks pretty impressive. It is possibly (?) the largest building in the French Pacific.



Some pictures from earlier this year:







This is how it will look when completed:

Construction of the Médipôle will cost 49.7 billion Pacific francs (€416 million; US$545 million). 100,000 m² (1.1 million sq feet) of floor surfaces are being built, requiring 40,000 m³ (52,000 cubic yards) of concrete, 15,000 tonnes (16,500 US tons) of cement, 22,000 m² (237,000 sq feet) of seal (joints), 30,000 m² (323,000 sq feet) of metal roofing, 78 km (49 miles) of pipes.

Leveling of the 12 hectares (29 acres) of land over which the Médipôle will stand took 17 months and have been completed. It required moving around 243,000 m³ (318,000 cubic yards) of earth. The buildings are now starting to rise above ground as you can see in the picture below. 8 cranes and 230 workers are on site (with 50 more overseeing the construction from offices), and the number of workers on site will be brought to 600 at its peak (15 cranes would be needed to build all parts of the Médipôle simultaneously, but it's not possible to have so many cranes on site for technical reasons).

Construction is on schedule, and bar a hurricane, huge tropical storm, or earthquake, construction of the Médipôle should be completed in January 2016, and the hospital should open in July 2016 after all hospital services of Nouméa have been transfered there. The Médipôle is built by Vinci Construction (the same company that is building the Royal Amazonia Hotel & Resort in Cayenne, see post #244). Vinci has hired 98% of their workers locally, which is meant to boost construction skills in New Caledonia (part of the national plan to help usher the native Melanesian Kanaks into the modern economy and bring them economically equal to European New Caledonians). In particular, the Médipôle will be the first large structure in New Caledonia to be built using earthquake-resistant techniques. The skills taught by Vinci to the local workers will advance their careers by 5 years, says the company.

When opened, the Médipôle will offer up to 716 hospital beds. It will be able to deliver health care to 60,000 emergency patients, 40,000 patients requiring hospitalization, and 300,000 ambulatory patients per year

It look nice! I doubt it's the best in the Pacific east of Australia though. Hawai'i has some pretty world-class military hospitals that probably trump it.

The winning project selected by the local government of French Polynesia was conceived by Group 70 International, an "award-winning design firm of architects, planners, interior designers, civil engineers and asset managers" based in Honolulu, Hawaii. It beat other bids submitted by French and Chinese architecture firms.

The project will employ 10,500 people during construction, and 10,000 when the resort is operational after construction. It should take between 5 and 7 years to build, and the government of French Polynesia hopes it will boost tourism, which has declined in recent years.

Tahiti cherche à faire revenir ses touristes grâce à des hôtels luxueux

Le Figaro
26 juillet 2014

Les plages tahitiennes ne semblent plus séduire les touristes. Face à une diminution de près 20% des touristes en dix ans, la Polynésie française veut investir 2,1 milliards d'euros dans un complexe hôtelier de luxe.



52 hectares composés de cinq hôtels, un casino, un cinéma, des boutiques de luxe et un parc aquatique sur la côte ouest de Tahiti pour...2 milliards d'euros! Le nouveau complexe hôtelier lancé par Papeete et le cabinet d'architectes 70 International impressionne. Un projet plus cher que ceux proposés par les cabinets français et chinois mais qui, par ses spas et restaurants sous-marins, a séduit le jury polynésien pour relancer le tourisme. Car les palmiers et l'eau turquoise de Polynésie ne semblent plus attirer les touristes: la fréquentation touristique a diminué de 2,7% en 2013 à 164.393 voyageurs. Dix ans plus tôt, ils étaient 210.000.

[...]


Le projet global de Mahana Beach Resort and Spas créé par le groupe 70 International.

L'aménagement de Mahana Beach en complexe hôtelier s'annonce donc comme un espoir: «les concepteurs avancent le chiffre cumulé de 10.500 emplois durant la construction et 10. 000 dans la phase d'exploitation», indique Yves Haupert de la Présidence de la Polynésie française. Une opportunité pour apporter emplois et loisirs à une île restreinte aux sports nautiques, randonnées et aux plages de sable fin.

[...]


Le complexe Tahiti Mahana Beach Resort and Spas concentrera plus de 3000 chambres alors que l'île compte déjà une dizaine d'hôtels qu'elle peine à remplir.

Très interessant ! Thanks

Meanwhile, in South America:

This month (July 2014) the rainy season has returned, and once again the Brazilian BR-156 linking Oiapoque (on the Brazilian side of the bridge) to Macapá, the capital of Amapá, has become hell on Earth. The Brazilian authorities seem incapable of completing the pavement of the road. The road is 600 km long, only 113 km remain to be paved, but for several years now they have been unable to complete the work. Some people in the report say it's because of corruption: the money allocated by the Brazilian federal government to complete the pavement of that international road is being embezzled year after year in Amapá and so the work is not done. Meanwhile the international bridge sits empty, waiting for the Brazilians to put their act together, and it has become something of a joke in the French media.



It's reported it takes now 15 to 20 hours to cover the 600 km between Oiapoque and Macapá (you'll understand why in the video report). To make things worse, the is no airfield in the Brazilian town of Oiapoque, and because of the new international bridge due for years to 'open soon', the Brazilian government stopped the transport of gasoline/oil by boat to Oiapoque (I guess because they were expecting Oiapoque to get its gasoline/oil from French Guiana after the bridge is open), so as a result the town of Oiapoque has been left without electricity this month, because the trucks transporting gasoline/oil to refuel the local electricity generators cannot travel overland from Macapá.

According to the report, the current governor of Amapá is quite conscious of the problem (the former governor has been indicted and is awaiting trial for embezzlement). He would like to accelerate work on the road now, but there is a state election coming up in Amapá, and Brazilian law forbids public tenders before elections. Anyway, this is Brazil behind the glitter of the World Cup, as one Brazilian guy puts it in the video.

On a side note, I found it quite interesting how several Brazilians interviewed in the report speak very good French (one young guy even has no Brazilian accent whatsoever when speaking French; he must have gone to school in French Guiana I suppose to have such a perfect French accent).



Meanwhile on the French side of the border this road has been awaiting traffic for 4 years now...

The "French nautical empire" is a huge opportunity for France, it's a great potential for the future.

PS : it's 11 million km², not 10,2.

Brisavoine:

Quote:
16,500 km from Paris, the population census of New Caledonia has started this week. The census will take place throughout the mainland and the outlying islands until September 22. The first results (official population tallies for the entire territory and for each municipality) will be released in December.







It will be interesting to see whether Greater Nouméa (picture below), the only real city in New Caledonia, has continued to boom since the last census which took place in August 2009. Between the 1996 and 2009 censuses, the Greater Nouméa metro area had a population growth rate of +2.4% per year, one of the highest urban population growth rates in the French Republic.



It will also be interesting to find out how the ethnic make-up of New Caledonia has changed since the last census. New Caledonia is the last French territory which still asks ethnic questions in its censuses. The pro-independence Kanak leaders are always worried that their community is going to be drowned by new arrivals of Metropolitan Frenchmen (something which wasn't confirmed by the 2009 census), so they pay great attention to these ethnic data. There is complete freedom of movement between Metropolitan France and New Caledonia, so any Metropolitan Frenchman can freely move to New Caledonia. In theory job access is limited to locals since the Nouméa Accord of 1998, but in practice it's still relatively easy for Metropolitan Frenchmen to get a job locally.

It's difficult to know the exact number of Europeans living in New Caledonia though, because the 2009 census introduced a new "Caledonian ethnicity" box, a bit like the "Canadian ancestry" box in the Canadian census which obscures the origins of the Canadian people mostly of French descent. In New Caledonia it is thought that most people who tick the "Caledonian" box are of European ancestry.

Two TV reports showing the census operations. The first one at the offices of New Caledonia's statistical institute (a branch of INSEE). The second one on the ground, in the streets and houses of Nouméa.
