20 Minutes translation


The new was surprizing. On week after the annoucement by Johanna Rolland (Nantes métropole Chairwoman), about new tramway line through île de Nantes, lot of questions remains.

Why a tramway ?

New public transport north-south line through île de Nantes project was well known, particularly to desserve new hospital. But technical mode was unknown.
« Expected patronage led to choice tramway, having greater capacity », tells Alain Boeswillwald, Semitan Chairman.
The new line will run between quai de la Fosse and Zac des Isles in Rezé (between Pirmil and Atout-sud), desserving "quartier de la création" and hospital.

« Nobody was expecting to tramway choice, said Gabriel Magner (CFDT workers union). It's good new ! We're now waiting informations about financial, and (impact on) local employment. »


What traject ?

"No any is decided" Johanna Rolland says .
"Studies will start in February, with meeting of Mayors, then public consultation. If the line should start from Chantiers navals (old Shipping yards), connected with Line 1, many questions remain, among which the width of Anne-de-Bretagne bridge".

Crossing "Machines site" will be no easier.
Less problems with Trois-Continents bridge, which can receive a tramway.
End of the line could be Rézé Town Hall (south shore suburbs).
Bus citizens groups want the tram going till Castle borough (quartier du château), and connection with line 3.

>> Also : Nantes métropole is studying line 1 north extension to Chapelle-sur-Erdre
What cost ?


No more détails on global budget, may be dozens millions euros.
« It's very important financial decision », says Johanna Rolland, who told last wednesday « 310 millions euros will be invested in public transports, before end of 2020 ».

Works with others conséquences :

« New line means new tender for tram rolling stocks, says Alain Boeswillwald, new yards for this new vehicles. Bus we need stronger north-south line. Crossing the river is real problem»

« P + R at end of new line are also necessary, existing ones on south shore are full. »

Hard to say.

In cities with more than 100 000

public transport : 5 to 30 %,
walk : 20 to 60 %
bicycle : 1 to 10 %
car : 20 to 75 %

in the place where I live : Metropole de Lyon - 533 km2 - 1,355,000 inhab
public transport : 20 %
walk : 35 %
bicycle : 2 %
cars : 42 %
others : 1 %

In the two cities which are the core of Metropole : Lyon + Villeurbanne - 62 km2 - 655 000 inhab
https://www.google.fr/maps/place/Lyo...043!4d4.835659
public transport : 25 %
walk : 45 %
bicycle : 3 %
cars : 26 %
others : 1 %

Hum ... what in France is called BHNS (High Level Bus Service) is generally a very, very light BRT
Mainly in medium size cities like Chartres
Often, just the vehicles are "like tram" designed,
some lanes are reserved in the widest avenues (where it's easy doing)
and ...... that's all.
