On the roof of the "Mamac", the museum of modern and contemporary art in Nice, the mayor Christian Estrosi turns to the sea side then to the land side before questioning, not without irony, the peloton which surrounds him.

“Which side do you prefer?

Does anyone dare to say that he prefers this one?

The city councilor, joking, points to the reliefs side of the Paillon promenade, where the Acropolis convention center is still located.

In June, there should not be a single orange brick left in order to carry out the flagship project of his third term: the extension of the green corridor.

The first magistrate of the city made a

“point of stage”

, Friday, on the work of the latter.

History to also show that he won the standoff with his last opponents.

When he arrived at the construction site, a handful of demonstrators tried to challenge him without much success.

The mayor then displayed his ambitions and above all, his timetable.

By December 2025, its

"urban forest"

as part of the extension must be completed.

A date that coincides -

"as if by chance!"

creak his rivals - with the upcoming municipal elections.

“They will multiply the inaugurations of works at all costs”

, predicts another.

Still, Christian Estrosi, accompanied by some of his assistants, was pleased to detail the next deadlines.

“We are not Anne Hidalgo”

, he slipped during his stroll, not without ulterior motives towards the critics of Éric Ciotti.

"Smooth traffic"

His remarks focused on the esplanade of the Bourgada.

This will be revegetated with the creation of a

“terraced garden”

, indicates the municipality.

Several Mediterranean essences will compose it in order to create

the vaunted “island of freshness”

, in place of the national theatre.

The roads adjoining the Bourgada, which are very busy (avenues Saint-Sébastien, Saint Jean-Baptiste and boulevard Risso) will be reduced during the works but also afterwards.

The project provides for a two-lane passage, one for cars, one for buses.

During the work, none will be temporarily closed, assured the city councilor.

A two-way cycle path will complete the complete redevelopment of these roads.

“The people of Nice have been warned and will get used to

, predicts Christian Estrosi.

This will make circulation more fluid with an increase in soft mobility.”

The elected official is aiming for 30% less traffic thanks to the complete completion of the work.

A stone's throw away, a belvedere will also rise on this space to enjoy a panoramic view of the city.

By June 2024, i.e. before the exceptional arrival of the Tour de France in Nice, these facilities will be delivered.

Regarding the Sosno garden, at the foot of the Tête Carrée monument, the transplanting of olive trees to the Var plain has already begun.

The redevelopment will continue in order

to "ensure continuity between the future belvedere and the Barla crossing"

, specifies the town hall.

A repair of the waterproofing of the roof of the library and the creation of a space for gatherings are planned, all for delivery at the end of 2024.

These new stages will mark gradual progress but some of the green flow.

The upcoming development of the park on the De Lattre de Tassigny esplanade will be done with 250 trees and an addition of 8,000 cubic meters of topsoil.

This new landscape will be delivered at the beginning of 2025. As for the post-Acropolis landscaping, the end point of the extension of the Paillon promenade, this is scheduled for December 2025. A works information point has been installed at the level of the Bourgada to follow the progress.
