Montpellier western bypass: two new appeals filed by the Autre-COM collective

Le Com doit relier l'A750 à l'A709. Midi Libre – RICHARD DE HULLESSEN

Le collectif se pourvoit en appel contre la Déclaration d'utilité publique et dépose un autre recours pour dénoncer l'absence d'une étude alternative. 

L'Autre-COM, a collective opposed to the Montpellier Western Bypass, is not disarming. After being rejected by the Montpellier administrative court last December, the collective decided to appeal to the Toulouse administrative court against the declaration of public utility adopted in 2021. &quot ;They closed the file without us being able to submit our fifty-page memoir", regrets Céline Scornavacca, member of the Other- COM. 

A missing study ?

A second appeal was filed before the Paris administrative court where the Ministry of Transport sits in order to obtain the results of the VSA 70 study requested by the investigating commissioner from 2020 . VSA, for "Agglomeration structuring route" whose maximum authorized speed is 70 km/h, does not have the same characteristics as a motorway portion. "The ministry was committed to delivering this study in 2021. We requested it from Cada* and obtained a receipt for a study launched in 2022. But we still have nothing", deplores the collective. 

Urban boulevard or highway ?

The members also plead for an urban boulevard rather than a highway. Finally, they do not rule out filing a third appeal regarding the financing which they are still contesting despite the recent opinion of the Council of State. In the meantime, the Montpellier western ring road project continues with two important stages this year: plot and environmental surveys.
