That's quite a upward calibration when compared to UN data!

Population projection of the Guianas (in 1,000 people)

Do you happen to know why Guyana is going down the drain by the way?

INSEE projections are based on more recent data than the UN projections.

Here are the results of the 2008 French census released last week for the urban areas of overseas France (Jan. 2008 census for the urban areas in the overseas departments; specific censuses on different dates for the urban areas in the overseas collectivities). I've listed the 8 largest urban areas in overseas France, with their population at the last census that was just released, and their yearly population increase since the previous census.

Note that the maps are not at the same scale.

1- Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe): 178,631 inhabitants (in Jan. 2008)
(+0.46% per year since 1999)

Le Lamentin, Martinique

Place Mahault

Le lamentin is a city of the suburb of Fort-de-France. This city is supposed to have a bus and tram stop to welcome the future tramway in 2015...
The area (called Place Mahault) around the tram station will change. The only thing I know is that there will are a kind of arena called "Zénith", which will be a place, I guess for concerts, sports events etc ...

The Zénith is on the left. On the back in yellow it's the downtown of Le lamentin.



The roads you see with the roundabout in the bottom already exist.

The structure of the Pointe Simon tower in Fort-de-France (Martinique) is now completed. Only the cladding and the antenna remain to be installed. The tower will be 97-meter (318 ft) high to the tip of the antenna.

The minister in charge of overseas France said that the French state supports the project of a 6-lane motorway to link the northern and western parts of Réunion, in the Indian Ocean. This will be the first 6-lane motorway in overseas France.

More information.

Not only will this motorway have 6 lanes, but it will also be built out in the ocean, to protect motorists from rocks falling from the cliffs along the coast. This is massive engineering. Here is a render.



This 6-lane motorway will be about 12 km in length, built on a viaduct 20 to 60 meters out into the ocean (i.e. 20 to 60 meters off the shore) where the bottom of the ocean is 5 to 14 meters below the surface of the water. The width of the motorway above the viaduct will be 29 meters. There will unfortunately be no standard motorway hard shoulders on boths sides of the motorway (they were scrapped to diminish the cost of this already very expensive motorway). Instead, there will be a BDD, a sort of sub-standard shoulder that will only be about 1 meter wide.

[img]http://i54.************/2lj00hz.png[/img]

The viaduct will be far enough from the shore to be out of harms way if the entire cliff collapsed. The viaduct is also designed to resist a centennial hurricane with associated mega waves. The hypothesis of a tsunami was also studied. Motorists will drive on average 18 meters above sea-level.

The 12 km of motorway should cost 1.6 billion euros (2.3 billion US dollars). Work is due to start in the end of 2013, and the motorway is due to open to traffic in 2020. Icing on the cake: it will be toll free.

The current road below the cliffs (which the 6-lane motorway is due to replace) has a traffic of 55,000 vehicles per day. Traffic on that road increases by 2% every year.

Thank you Brisavoine
It will not be the first 6 lane motorway in the overseas France. There is already one in Martinique and maybe in Guadeloupe or in La Réunion itself...

The road we are talking about is called La route du littoral
This is a video of the project : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqKp-UPjgtE

It will be quite the engineering feat.

La Reunion needed it, the island has a lot of potential and France knows it.
