Recytal®-ARM, une solution d’entretien des routes « bas-carbone » au liant végétal
Eiffage Route, la filiale routière de la branche Infrastructures du groupe Eiffage, accorde une importance stratégique au respect de l’environnement. Aussi alors que la réduction du recours aux énergies fossiles et aux ressources d’origine fossile s'impose, les équipes de R&D d'Eiffage Route, une filiale qui dispose de ses propres centres d'études et de recherche à Ciry-Salsogne dans l'Aisne et à Corbas près de Lyon, sont parvenues à substituer des matières végétales aux bitumes et à régénérer des matériaux au moyen de liants végétaux non issus du pétrole.
 
Ainsi, Eiffage Route a mis au point et...
Eiffage Route, the road subsidiary of the Eiffage Group's Infrastructures division, attaches a strategic importance to respect for the environment. Also, while reducing the use of fossil fuels and fossil-based resources is essential, the R & D teams of Eiffage Route, which has its own research and study centers in Ciry-Salsogne in Aisne and at Corbas near Lyon, succeeded in substituting plant materials for bitumen and regenerating materials by means of plant binders not derived from petroleum.
 
Thus, in July 2018, Eiffage Route developed and tested in partnership with the bodies of the Gironde Departmental Council, the exclusive patent Recytal®-ARM process, which combines a bio-sourced vegetable binder derived from silviculture and paper industry byproducts, and a cold in place reprocessing method.
 
The works carried out in Gironde aimed at rehabilitating the 670 departmental road  located between Saint Jean de Blaignac and Sauveterre de Guyenne, in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards, thanks to the 100% recycling of old damaged pavements and the use of agro-resources.
 
Recytal®-ARM differs from the usual techniques because it does not use any petrochemical resource and allows a 100% re-use of the existing pavement, thus putting an end to the use of non-renewable natural resources and the production of waste linked to the construction site.

Eiffage, which has made innovation and ecological transition two of the pillars of its strategic plan, is setting up, in partnership with Impulse Partners, a specialist in construction innovation, "Sekoya", a carbon & climate platform entirely dedicated to low carbon materials and processes.
 
With climate change becoming a reality, Eiffage is committed to a low-carbon strategy. The Group wants to be exemplary, starting with curbing its own emissions, but as a construction sector leader, it also intends to support its customers in reducing their own carbon footprints, by developing alternative solutions and incorporating these as fully as possible into its offers.
 
Sekoya will help create a low-carbon industry club, by facilitating the identification of new and existing solutions and promoting interactions between all stakeholders., and by encouraging interaction between all parties involved. Committed partners (startups, SMEs, major accounts, suppliers, financial institutions) and customers will be able to discuss, document and promote low-carbon solutions. Once audited, these solutions will be available for use in tender proposals.
Dynamic bus lanes, real-time road sharing for mobility

Il s'agit d'une première en France, qui vise à concilier amélioration de la fluidité des transports en commun et circulation automobile dans des zones contraintes. En 2017, à Lyon, les équipes d'Eiffage Énergie Systèmes ont testé un couloir de bus dynamique : l'une des voies, bordée de Leds rouges au sol, était temporairement réservée aux bus, détectés en amont grâce à des équipements adéquats. Les automobilistes étaient invités à se rabattre sur la voie de gauche.

This is a first in France to reconcile improving the fluidity of public transport and traffic in constrained areas. In 2017, in Lyon, the Eiffage Énergie Systèmes teams tested a dynamic bus lane: one of the lanes, lined with red Leds on the ground, was temporarily reserved for buses, detected upstream with appropriate equipment. Motorists were invited to fall back on the left lane.
Digital transport 4 Africa : une plateforme numérique pour améliorer la mobilité en Afrique
L’Afrique est entrée dans une phase historique de construction rapide de la ville. Des systèmes et infrastructures de transport, qui façonneront le continent pour les années à venir, sont en création.
Rendre ces systèmes de transport sûrs, abordables, accessibles et durables pour tous est indispensable pour des villes africaines vivantes, productives, bas carbone et saines.
La plupart des villes africaines utilisent des modes de transport semi-formels, souvent des minibus, et dont la gestion est dominée par des opérateurs privés fragmentés.
Ces systèmes de transport en commun...
Africa is in a historic phase of rapid city building. It is creating transport infrastructure and systems that will shape the continent far into the future.
Making these transport systems safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable for all is fundamental to livable, productive, low carbon and healthy African cities.
Most African cities rely on some form of semi-formal transport, often minibuses, dominated by fragmented private operators.
These transit systems provide a much needed service for many, at no cost for the city. But these services also bring a host of challenges to cities, contributing to traffic congestion, pollution and poor road safety.
Digital technologies are a tremendous opportunity to address these challenges. Public transport data is currently missing for planning integrated public transport, designing passenger information systems, and working with operators to upgrade transit services. With this, DigitalTransport4Africa was born – an open data and collaborative online platform – which aims to aggregate available data on transports to improve mobility within developing countries.

Les objectifs sont divers : développer les modes de circulation douce, développer l’accessibilité, la mobilité et les connexions, enfin réduire les pollutions atmosphériques.
Cette action offre la possibilité aux usagers de se déplacer librement et de façon autonome dans la ville (intra ou extra-muros) dans un total respect de l’environnement.
Les vélos sont disponibles 24h/24h, 7j/7j et sont 100% accessibles via une...
This experimental system, trialled over a six-month period in the city of Avon, was a great success and will certainly be continued in partnership with neighbouring cities. The objectives are diverse: to develop alternative modes of transport, develop accessibility, mobility and connections, and, finally, reduce atmospheric pollution. This initiative allows users to move freely and autonomously within the city (intra or extramural) with complete respect for the environment. Bicycles are available 24/7 and are 100% accessible via a Smartphone application that users can download free of charge.
This project is one of the nominees for the 28th edition of the Eco Action Trophies, the leading sustainable development competition for local communities, organised by the Les Eco Maires association.
Dunkerque : une agglomération en transition

Riche de son héritage industrialo-portuaire, l’agglomération dunkerquoise a intensifié son engagement dans une transition énergétique industrielle, environnementale et sociétale.

En créant des synergies et des partenariats autour de nouveaux modèles, cette transformation énergétique entend répondre à un double enjeu :

• Préserver la vocation du territoire tout en engageant une véritable transition économique et durable

• Favoriser un environnement équilibré propre au développement de son attractivité.

 

Cette volonté de développer des solutions innovantes plus justes et durablement...

With its wealth of industrial and port heritage, the Dunkirk conurbation has intensified its commitment to an industrial, environmental and social energy transition.
By creating synergies and partnerships around new models, this energy transformation aims to meet a twofold challenge:
- To preserve the appeal of the area while engaging in a genuine economic and sustainable transition
- To promote a balanced environment, conducive to the development of its attractiveness.
 
This desire to develop innovative, fairer and more sustainable solutions has recently been reflected in the introduction of the new public transport network.
 
Since 1 September, Dunkirk has become the largest urban area in Europe to have developed a 100% free public transport network.
Above and beyond this exemplary action, a whole global strategy is presented, which demonstrates our ability to exploit our assets and reveal their economic and environmental synergies.
Tools for development website

Le site « Outils de l’aménagement » s’adresse en priorité à des élus locaux, des techniciens de collectivités locales et aux autres acteurs de l’aménagement, auxquels il apporte des informations sur les outils et les méthodes principalement dans les champs du foncier, de l’urbanisme opérationnel et réglementaire, de l’environnement et de l’habitat. Il constitue une base de données techniques de plus de 250 outils accessibles selon 7 thématiques principales et près de 35 problématiques opérationnelles, pour ainsi répondre aux principaux questionnements des acteurs du territoire.

The "Tools for development" website is intended primarily for local elected officials, technicians from local authorities and other stakeholders in development, to whom it provides information on tools and methods mainly in the fields of land, operational and regulatory urban planning, the environment and housing. It constitutes a technical database of more than 250 tools accessible according to seven main themes and nearly 35 operational issues, thus answering the territory's stakeholders' most pressing questions.
The free transport observatory is born!
En France, la gratuité des transports publics a jusqu’à présent été peu étudiée par la communauté scientifique. L’Observatoire des villes du transport gratuit, créé le 5 juin 2019 à l’initiative conjointe de l’Agence d’urbanisme de la région Flandre-Dunkerque, de la Communauté urbaine de Dunkerque et de l’association de chercheurs VIGS, espère faire bouger les lignes.
 
La création de cet observatoire répond à un enjeu d'importance : sortir des représentations idéologiques et enrichir les débats autour d'une politique publique à laquelle de plus en plus d'élus, ou futurs élus, s'intéressent, moins d'...
In France, free public transport has so far been studied very little by the scientific community. The Observatory of cities with free transport, created on 5 June 2019 as a joint initiative of the Flanders-Dunkirk Regional Planning Agency, the Urban Community of Dunkirk and the VIGS researchers' association, hopes to shift the boundaries.
The creation of this Observatory responds to an important challenge: to move away from ideological representations and enrich the debates around a public policy in which more and more elected officials, or future elected officials, are taking an interest, less than a year before municipal elections.
In addition to improving the state of knowledge about free public transport - in particular, it is a question of knowing which areas have adopted it, in France and abroad, and using which methods. This observatory aims to track, through monitoring, all developments concerning free public transport. It also aims to develop research on the subject, by initiating or conducting studies itself.
The activity of the Observatory of cities with free transport is subject to the control and validation of an independent scientific committee, chaired by political science researcher Maxime Huré.
The Observatory is aimed at a wide audience: residents, journalists, elected officials and technicians from local authorities who are interested in and questioning the free provision of public transport. Everyone will find useful and reliable resources to improve their knowledge of the subject.
Shared parking experiences with Zenpark
Dans le cadre de son  groupe de travail sur les outils juridiques pour des projets urbains innovants, l’Institut pour la Ville Durable (IVD), avec l’appui du cabinet  LexCity, a réalisé deux rapports : l’un sur les outils juridiques de la commande publique et un autre sur les outils de droit privé. Ces rapports ont été illustrés et approfondis par des cas d’étude,  proposés par les membres de l’IVD, à partir de  3 thématiques : économie circulaire, mutualisation des usages et des services et boucle énergétique locale.
L’opérateur immobilier ICADE a ainsi contribué à enrichir ces travaux en proposant d’étudier le...
As part of its working group on legal tools for innovative urban projects, the Institut pour la Ville Durable (IVD - Sustainable city institute), with the support of LexCity, has produced two reports: one on legal tools for public procurement and the other on private law tools. These reports have been illustrated and developed further through case studies, proposed by the members of IVD, based upon three themes: circular economy, the sharing and pooling of uses and services and a local energy loop.
The property investment and development company ICADE has contributed significantly to this work by offering to study the case of the Zenpark shared car park scheme, to illustrate the theme "sharing and use of services". Thanks to a network of smart, connected car parks managed by the startup, partners (hotels, residential landlords or companies) can optimise the use of their car parks and make them accessible to motorists who are members of Zenpark, by means of an automatic and secure system installed at the entrance of the car parks. ICADE has, therefore, joined forces with this startup to integrate an innovative parking offer into its development projects.
This case study looks at the different models of car parks (shared, pooled) and the legal arrangements around the issues of implementation, ownership and contract agreement that allow Zenpark to manage their operation.
Le projet GELITRA « Solutions innovantes pour le transport de marchandises »

GELITRA (GEstion LIvraison TRAfic) répond à un besoin simple : éviter définitivement et à chaque instant, tout stationnement et congestion des espaces de circulation par les engins, à proximité des accès des chantiers. GELITRA est une gestion dynamique du trafic vers les chantiers. La régulation est structurée et optimisée par une solution numérique développée par ARTELIA pour le chantier des Halles. Les résultats de GELITRA sur ce chantier, parmi les plus importants du monde et dans un des centres urbains les plus denses, sont manifestes. Aucun riverain ne s’est plaint d’une quelconque occupation de la voirie par un véhicule de chantier...

GELITRA (French acronym standing for Management, Delivery and Traffic) addresses a simple need: to definitively avoid the parking and traffic congestion of vehicles near access points to construction sites at all times. GELITRA is a dynamic method for managing traffic caused by construction sites.

Traffic control is structured and optimised by a digital device developed by Artelia for the Halles construction site (Paris). GELITRA managed to achieve visible results in the context of this construction site, which is located in one of the densest urban centres and forms one of the biggest construction sites in the world. No residents have complained about any road use by a vehicle from the construction site, including during peak periods where a thousand workers and hundreds of lorries were operating alongside the 750 000 daily passengers in the Halles. Our solution relies on the development of a construction site management app which makes it possible to divert problems stemming from the management of construction site machines and vehicles towards a separate control area. This area is not residential, free from any neighbours (for the Halles, it was a space located near the Louvre, on the banks of the Seine), and yet close to the construction site (within a 500 to 800-metre radius).
