President Daniel GIBBES gave the go-ahead for the Community of Saint-Martin to start the 17 May 2017 studies to prepare the project to bypass the Boulevard de Grand Case. This project aims at reducing and decongesting the center of Grand-Case by creating a road and pedestrian road along the edge of the pond of the airport, on the outskirts of Grand-Case, connecting the RN7 to the new road .
The task of project management and the carrying out of regulatory environmental studies have been entrusted to the ARTELIA group (mandataire) -SCE-TROPISME.
Various studies will have to be carried out within the framework of this program, in particular the geotechnical studies on the site that will be carried out on 17 May 2017. The purpose of these studies is to determine the state of the soil in order to provide prescriptions on the construction principles (earthworks, supports, slopes and slopes, foundations, road bases). They will be made by mechanical shovel. The subcontractor for this work is "Antilles Geotechnique" with two rentals of excavator with driver:
• M. Didier Lake - EURL TTGCE
• M. Herbert Lake - SARL GCEE
This first phase concerns only feasibility studies, the start of the project will be the subject of a second phase which will be programmed later.
