Ok, here is the answer. Nouméa is the fastest or 2nd fastest growing metropolitan area of more than 100,000 inh. in France depending what definition we use for Mamoudzou (Mayotte).

Between the 1996 and 2009 censuses, the Nouméa metro area grew by +2.44% per year. Regarding Mamoudzou, INSEE considers that the metro area of Mamoudzou is the entire Grande Terre of Mayotte, but I find that a very large definition. If we follow INSEE's definition, then the Mamoudzou metro area had a population of 188,442 inh. in 2012, and it grew by +3.00% per year between 2007 and 2012. If I take only the commune of the Mamoudzou and the 2 communes neighboring it, which is more properly the urban zone of Mamoudzou, then it had only 94,692 inh. in 2012, and it grew by +2.64% per year between 2007 and 2012.

After Nouméa and Mamoudzou, the fastest growing metro area of more than 100,000 inh. is Cayenne, whose population grew by +2.29% per year between 1999 and 2010, followed by Toulouse, whose population grew by +1.75% per year between 1999 and 2010. The Ajaccio metro area, which has just little less than 100,000 inh., grew by +2.29% per year between 1999 and 2010.

A video showing the project of a new penitentiary for French Polynesia. The penitentiary, which is currently located in the congested center of the Papeete urban area and is overcrowded and decaying, is going to be moved to Papeari, in the eastern part of the island of Tahiti, where a new, state-of-the art penitentiary is going to be built.

Construction is due to start in the middle of 2013, and the penitentiary, whose construction will cost 80 million euros, financed by the French central state, will open in the end of 2016. It will be able to accommodate 410 inmates, plus 250 personnel.

News from the Royal Amazonia Hotel & Resort currently under construction in Cayenne. The Royal Amazonia will be the largest hotel in French Guiana when it opens in 2014. Not only that, but it will be a 4-star hotel, the first 4-star hotel in French Guiana. Built by Vinci Construction (a branch of the French concessions and construction company Vinci), the Royal Amazonia will be a Best Western Premier property.

The Royal Amazonia is being built next to the University of Cayenne. With a floor surface of 10,000 m² (110,000 sq. ft), it will contain 134 rooms and 18 suites, 9 seminar and conference rooms, a swimming pool, a spa, a fitness room, a tennis court, a steam room (not sure that's really needed in French Guiana), and a restaurant. Construction will cost 16 million euros (21 million US dollars).

A render:


They are about to start construction of the 4th floor (3rd storey):

Prêts pour le 3e étage du Royal Amazonia de Zéphir

France Guyane
6 avril 2013

L'établissement, dont la première pierre a été posée en juillet dernier, devrait ouvrir en 2014. La semaine prochaine, les équipes doivent s'atteler à l'édification du troisième et dernier étage.

[img]http://i50.************/de1fk5.png[/img]

UN COMPLEXE QUATRE ÉTOILES

Le Royal Amazonia hôtel et resort devrait ouvrir ses portes dans le courant de l'année 2014. Il s'inscrit dans le cadre du projet de base avancée pour la Coupe du monde de football 2014 et les Jeux Olympiques 2016 au Brésil. Situé aux abords du Pôle universitaire de Guyane, l'établissement sera un « quatre étoiles » , selon les nouveaux classements, ce qui correspond aux anciens « trois étoiles » .

134 CHAMBRES DONT 18 SUITES

L'hôtel, qui sera exploité sous le label Best Western Premier, comptera 134 chambres, dont 18 suites. Parmi ces 134 chambres, 9, dont une suite, seront accessibles aux personnes à mobilité réduite. Le groupe SEHTG, à la tête du projet (et qui possède déjà l'hôtel Amazonia, à Cayenne, ndlr), annonce fièrement la construction d'un pôle affaires comprenant neuf espaces de conférences et séminaires, dont une salle polyvalente de 280 m2.

PISCINE ET COURT DE TENNIS

D'autres équipements seront à disposition des clients : une piscine, un spa, un court de tennis, un hammam, une salle de fitness, un restaurant. L'ensemble de l'établissement, chambres et équipements complémentaires s'érigeant sur une surface de 10 000 m2.

UNE CONSTRUCTION IMPORTANTE

En terme de capacité, l'hôtel sera le plus important du département. Lors de la pose de la première pierre, le groupe annonçait un projet d'un coût de 18 millions d'euros. Aujourd'hui, il avance un montant total de près de 16 millions. Pour cette construction, les investisseurs auront bénéficié de 30% de financement de l'Europe, du Cnes et de la Région. Le reste provenant de fonds privés.

The new Urban Master Plan of Nouméa has been adopted, more than 10 years after the previous Urban Master Plan in 1988. The 2013 version unfortunately still does not plan any high-rise in downtown Nouméa. Quite the opposite, the new master plan intends to limit density in downtown Nouméa. What's more, high-rise buildings will now be forbidden in the touristic southern neighborhoods of Nouméa (Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons).

Meanwhile, urbanization is sprawling ever further from the center of Nouméa towards the outskirts. Continuous urbanization now extends more than 13 km (8 miles) from downtown Nouméa, which creates road congestion, since the peninsula on which Nouméa is built can only be reached from the suburbs by 2 roads (one 4-lane motorway, and one 2-lane road), and there exist no railways, tramway, or subway, only public buses with crappy service (few buses per hour, no bus lanes, frequent work stoppages by heavily unionized bus drivers, attacks against buses by some marginalized populations in the suburbs, etc.).

PS : The mayor of Nouméa, Jean Lèques, who is turning 82 in August, has now been in office for more than 27 years. Apparently he wishes to run for a 6th term in the municipal elections of March 2014.

La ville accouche de son PUD

Les Nouvelles calédoniennes
10 avril 2013

En gestation depuis dix ans, le plan d’urbanisme directeur de Nouméa a été adopté, hier soir, par le conseil municipal. Il devrait être soumis à l’assemblée de province dans les prochaines semaines pour une application fin mai. Voici ce qui devrait changer.


Le PUD va maintenant être soumis au comité d’urbanisme de la province. Il devra ensuite être voté en assemblée, en mai. Une fois adopté, il sera effectif.

[...]

Plus d’habitations en centre-ville

Les droits à construire vont être augmentés dans cette zone afin de « dynamiser les activités économiques, administratives, tout en préservant certaines zones patrimoniales telles que le boulevard Vauban ». Cependant, pour éviter une trop forte densité d’habitations, un coefficient des sols, supprimé dans les autres zones, sera maintenu. Par ailleurs, l’idée est de développer le front de mer en prolongeant le Quartier-Latin jusqu’à la pointe Denouel et en augmentant le droit à construire en hauteur autour de la petite rade.

Des cœurs de quartier

C’est l’un des points forts du PUD. La création de cœurs de quartier a pour objectif de développer un esprit de village avec des commerces et des services de proximité. Concrètement, comment cela se traduit ?

[...]

Quartiers sud

Fini les grands immeubles qui surgissent devant les villas. Principale mesure du PUD, la hauteur des bâtiments est ramenée à deux niveaux en zone résidentielle de moyenne intensité et à trois niveaux sur les terrains de plus de neuf ares, sur les zones de forte densité. Une vaste zone touristique s’étend toujours du complexe de la Baie-des-Citrons à l’entrée de la rue Gabriel-Laroque.

C’est le nombre d’années qu’il a fallu pour réviser le PUD de Nouméa. L’ancien date de 1998 et ressemble plus à « un droit des sols », selon François Breugnon, directeur de l’aménagement de la ville. Pendant quinze ans, c’est pourtant ce texte qui a servi de référence.

Some news of the Médipôle of Koutio, in the northwestern suburbs of Nouméa, which I already talked about in post #235 and post #236. The Médipôle of Koutio will be the largest and most modern hospital in New Caledonia (and in the Pacific east of Australia).

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.

Un chantier monumental

Les Nouvelles calédoniennes
12 avril 2013

Alors que le gouvernement organisait mercredi une visite du futur médipôle, un point sur le plus important chantier public de Nouvelle-Calédonie. Les travaux de gros œuvre sont dans les temps. La livraison est toujours prévue pour janvier 2016 avec une ouverture en juillet suivant.


Les effectifs complémentaires représenteront 424 personnes, dont 19 médecins, 299 personnels soignants, 55 médico-techniques, 67 agents techniques et 14 administratifs.

Mercredi matin, le président et les membres du gouvernement étaient au médipôle de Koutio. Une visite d’étape alors que les travaux ont atteint les 20 % d’avancement. Le point sur ce qui est aujourd’hui le plus gros chantier public du pays et qui offrira à terme et à plein régime, 25 % de capacité supplémentaire (lire ci-contre) par rapport aux quatre sites actuels du CHT (centre-ville, Magenta, Raoul-Follereau et Col de la Pirogue).

« Depuis le début de la construction, en juin 2012, le chantier progresse selon le calendrier prévu, à savoir une livraison en janvier 2016 pour une ouverture autour de juillet, le temps pour le CHT de réaliser le transfert vers Koutio », annonce Philippe Dunoyer, en charge du suivi du chantier pour le gouvernement. Il tempère tout de même cette annonce en précisant que le chantier est en avance sur certaines zones, mais en léger retard sur d’autres. « Pour le moment, on est dans les clous », se réjouit-il.

Grues. Après une très longue phase de terrassement, de végétalisation et de démolition de l’ancienne quarantaine (près de dix-sept mois, sur une surface de 12 hectares), le médipôle commence à prendre forme. Le chantier bat son plein et le ballet incessant des huit grues est là pour en attester.

[...]

C’est KMC (Koutio médipôle construction), créée spécialement et constituée de trois sociétés du groupe Vinci dont SCB, la filiale locale du groupe, qui a en charge la partie technique. Arbé, le local de l’étape, a, quant à lui, en charge la partie hébergement.

« Le chantier a été morcelé car il est tellement grand que l’on ne peut pas tout faire d’un coup sinon il faudrait 15 grues et 600 salariés sur le chantier et ce n’est pas possible techniquement, explique Jean-Marc Ciquera, le directeur de projet KMC. C’est un vrai partenariat entre KMC et Arbé. Il n’y en a pas un au-dessus de l’autre ».

[...]

49,7

C’est, en milliards de francs, le coût du médipôle. Il s’élevait au départ à 44 milliards. Le financement est de 34 milliards pour l’Agence sanitaire et sociale, 2 milliards par la Nouvelle-Calédonie, 5 milliards pour l’Etat et 8,7 milliards pour le CHT.

Il reste 6,5 milliards à trouver.
Quote:
Repères

Taille exceptionnelle

Le chantier est exceptionnel par sa taille avec 240 000 m3 de remblais, 100 000 m2 de surface bâtie, 40 000 m3 de béton, 15 000 tonnes de ciment, 22 000 m2 d’étanchéité, 30 000 m2 de toitures métalliques, 28 km de plomberie et 50 km de fluides médicaux.

Effectifs

Au plus fort des travaux, 600 personnes évolueront sur le chantier. Actuellement 230 personnes œuvrent sur le site et 50 autres encadrent le chantier dans les bureaux. Ces effectifs sont composés à 98 % de locaux.

Hospitalisation

Le médipôle ce sera une hospitalisation de jour à 62 places contre 18 actuellement, 521 lits a minima pour l’hospitalisation de court séjour extensible à 574. L’hospitalisation de moyen séjour sera de 80 lits au centre de soin, de suite et de rééducation. La capacité annuelle sera de 60 000 passages aux urgences, 300 000 consultations et quelque 40 000 hospitalisations.

Some of you had asked me about it for a long time, well here it is. They have finally set up the EU sign "France" at the Franco-Brazilian border.

The sign was set up just at the exit of the bridge over the Oyapock River, at the entrance on French territory. The picture was taken by 2 adventure-seeking girls from Marseille last February. To the left you can see the pointed white roofs of the border checkpoint.



On this aerial view from January 2011, I have indicated with a small red square the exact location of the "France" sign. You can see the pointed white roofs of the border checkpoint to the left.

Hi! My name is Lukas and I'm from Macapá, Amapá. I started to follow the discussion in this forum about the Binational Bridge (France-Brazil), and I decided to participate. Whenever I can, I'll post brazilian news about the bridge and something related to cross-border cooperation. Thank you!

News from Amapá, Brazil!

Governor Camilo Capiberibe, federal bench, directors Fecomércio, Sebrae and entrepreneurs of the state met on Tuesday, 17 (April) in Brasilia, with the Minister of Transport, César Borges, and had the good news that the period completion of works to the Customs facilities at Binational Bridge was reduced from 640 days for 120 days. Camilo Capiberibe, which was already doing actions along with the Ministry of Transportation to accelerate this inauguration, was very satisfied with the information. According to the governor, only with the opening of the bridge will be possible to initiate, verify and troubleshoot for effective trade between the State of Amapá and French Guiana.

[...]

The governor invited the Minister Cesar Borges and the director general of Dnit (National Department of Infrastructure and Transport), General Jorge Fraxe, for the inauguration of the first stretch (55 km) of the BR-156 northbound, in the month of May, and the Binational Bridge, which connects the city of Oyapock and Saint George, in French Guiana, in December this year.

In the report cite "first strectch of the BR-156". I'll explain: This part of the highway between Oyapock and Macapá has 596 km, of which about 160 km are not asphalted, because this stretch of road passing through the inside of indigenous lands (which causes a lot of bureaucracy) and also because this region is where more rains in Brazil (Calçoene and Oyapock municipalities), the paving job becomes slower, because it must wait for the dry season (known as Amazon winter).

Thank you for your witness, it's interesting.
Have you planned to use the bridge to go on the French side or do you know people in Amapa or Guyane who have planned to use it to cross the border and work on the other side of the bridge ?

For Guyane, it seems that the bridge is important because the Oyapoque is not so far, is it the same in Amapa or the bridge is too far from the nearest city ?

It would be interesting that the bridge lets more swap between the two regions.

So ... The bridge is near the city of Oyapock (about 5 km), then the cooperation between this city and Saint George will have no problem (on the contrary, will facilitate all), including already approved a bus touristic route that circulate the two border cities. However, the greatest obstacle is the issue of movement of persons: Today, French people can entering and transiting in Brazilian territory without any restrictions. But the brazilians may only be moved by the shopping street of Saint George (and under constant surveillance of the French Police). So it becomes a bit difficult to visit Guyane. And also most of the state's population lives in metropolitan area of Macapá (capital of Amapá), which is nearly 600 km from the border. It's too far! However, brazilians will not fail to visit. Including I want to get a job at Centre Spatial Guyanais, after I finish my college.

Redevelopment of the urban seafront of Saint-Denis, the largest city of Réunion, and largest French city in the Indian Ocean. The redevelopment
is called Espace Océan.

Several projects included towers, but the typical 'think small' French mentality prevailed and they were rejected by the municipal authorities.











Instead, this is the project which was selected by the municipal authorities, the most low-rise one:



[img]http://i41.************/2zodt95.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i40.************/2433s6h.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i39.************/2z7k7l1.jpg[/img]

This urban redevelopment will entail the construction of 700 dwellings, 17,000 m² of commercial surfaces, 5,400 m² of office
space, and 5,000 m² of hotel surfaces.

Construction will start this summer, and the whole redevelopment should be completed by 2017. 400 million euros will be invested
by private investors in this redevelopment project. All the streets will be pedestrian, and a wooden pier will be built over the seafront
highway to link the ocean with this new commercial district as you can see in the picture below, although the one tower in that
render was scrapped (too tall for the 'think small' French mentality).

Politics are the first to moan like madeleines on the medias about the lack of housing and the lack of social diversity, and they encourage it both with useless low-rises in the cities centers
