In January, the public enquiry commission handed down positive judgements on the Declaration of Public Utility, the Environmental Authorization, the creation of the PSMO designated development area (ZAC) and the plot survey. All these matters were submitted to it in September and October last. The teams at HAROPA - Paris Ports are now gearing up to respond to the requests for clarification and the recommendations made by the commission.
Generating synergy throughout the Seine axis
The future river port will underpin the development of construction and public works companies that use aggregates or choose to use river and rail transport for their imports and exports, as well as other activities with links to construction. It will contribute in this way to the economic dynamism of the Yvelines département and the Greater Paris area generally.
Located at the confluence of the Seine and Oise rivers and the future Seine – North Europe Canal, its completion will expand port coverage and add to the logistics and mass freight transport offering along the Seine axis. With its river and rail infrastructure, this multimodal facility will also encourage the transfer of goods transport from road to other solutions more protective of the environment: a necessity for satisfaction of the requirement to reduce congestion on the Greater Paris road network and intensification of efforts to mitigate climate change.
