Bicycle paths and Estagel bypass in operation!
A 166 metre bridge over the Agly, several roundabouts, an 8.5 km cycle path to Cases de Pène and a retaining wall have been built. Since 8 April, the 5,000 vehicles and 500 heavy goods vehicles that use the RD117 every day have been able to bypass Estagel, thus limiting the nuisance for the inhabitants of Estagel.
This project was made possible thanks to a budget of 13.5 million euros, with the Conseil Départemental des Pyrénées-Orientales providing 70% of the funding and Perpignan Méditerranée Métropole providing 30%, i.e. 3 million euros invested by PMM. This urban complex is designed to blend into the landscape and guarantee the safety of motorists, heavy goods vehicles and cyclists.
In order for a territory to shine and develop with efficient infrastructures and transport, Perpignan Méditerranée Métropole contributes daily to its development.
The inauguration took place in the presence of Roger Ferrer, mayor of Estagel, Hermeline Malherbes, president of the Pyrénées-Orientales department, Robert Vila, president of Perpignan Méditerranée Métropole, Marc Médina, vice-president of PMM, Philippe Fourcade, Théophile Martinez, Philippe Camps and Daniel Barbaro, community councillors of PMM, Jean Roque, departmental councillor responsible for mobility, Lola Beuze and Charles Chivilo, departmental councillors. Also present were the architects, engineers and companies who carried out the work.
