Residents and stakeholders of the Communauté d’agglomération des deux rives de Seine (CA2RS) have until 4 October to respond to the public hearing on the proposed “Eco-port de Triel” development.
Plans to build an industrial port at Triel-sur-Seine and Carrières-sous-Poissy are taking shape. Residents and stakeholders of the Communauté d’agglomération des deux rives de Seine (CA2RS) have until 4 October to respond to the public hearing opened in early September.
The proposal can be viewed at the Préfecture des Yvelines in Versailles, in the Triel-sur-Seine town hall and at the seat of the CA2RS in Carrières-sous-Poissy.
Boost river transport
Launched by the public institution Ports de Paris in 2006, the project aims to revitalise the sector’s economy by boosting river transport and setting up new businesses, more specifically in the eco-construction industry supported by the Conseil général. Philippe Tautou, president of the CA2RS and vice-president of the Conseil général, confirms that
“The Seine is a key transport link in Île-de-France and companies are making growing use of it. The development of the Eco-port des 2 Rives de Seine is designed to address this demand, and is part of the CA2RS’s broader plan to develop the economy in the Chanteloup loop.”
While the final engineering design is expected to be finished by the end of the year, construction work on the 34-hectare urban port (32.6ha in Triel-sur-Seine and 1.4ha in Carrières-sur-Seine) will not get under way until 2015. The cost of the work is estimated at €24 million.
