This permit affects:
Mons: Installation of the provisional access walkway
The provisional access walkway which will make it possible to reach the platforms from the provisional station has just been installed.
Next September, a second section of the access walkway, some 50 metres long, will extend the existing access walkway. More narrow (2 metres), this section will be reserved for the worksite and will serve as a junction between the two ends of the site.
Mons, beyond the walls
An entire new neighbourhood is going to be developed on the ten-hectare plot of land belonging to the SNCB [Belgian rail] outside the future Mons station on the Grands Prés side.
The master plan of this new neighbourhood, developed by Eurogare and adopted by the Mons Municipal Council provides for the establishment of a Conference Centre (the foundation stone for which has just been laid), a hotel, an estate for scientific activities and housing units.
Eurogare has just published a site promotion brochure to draw the attention of investors to all this new potential.
The Walloon government has just decided to allocate €50 million for the bus station on the roof slab of the Namur station.
In the wake of this decision, Eurogare will undertake the technical studies concerning the bridge and the slab. The aim is to submit the application for the single permit in March 2013.
