Last week (Tues 9th of april 2019), we decided to check on the Green Lane progress between Prigonrieux and Bergerac ie Le Chemin de la Batellerie (walk connected to the Pierre Loti footpath from the Bergerac port: my article here).
Work is still in progress with some parts already done (tarmac) and some not.
After many years in the pipeline, this 32 million of euros project got the green light in early 2018 and work started shortly after.
But in december 2018, the State Council put it on hold ruling in favor of the wildlife and heritage organizations. More infos: read my article: here).
Yesterday 09/04/19, the Administrative Court of Bordeaux cancelled the authorisation to build the bypass. So from “suspended” the project got “cancelled” and demolition order was given (total cost: 15 million).
Despite losing, the Chairman of the Departmental Council of Dordogne, Germinal Peiro, does not seem to be defeated by this decision. He confirmed that he is going to appeal!
