Policy Challenge: The launch of one of the most ambitious European projects around mobility, the Grand Paris Express, will lead to the construction of an automated metro in the Paris Region up to 2030. This project will highly improve the public transports offer, but it will impact mobility in a negative way. The construction will bring more than 200 km of metro and 68 new stations. Moreover, between all stations, ventilation shafts must be built every 800m, meaning every station will represent various yards, with a large impact on traffic, particularly on important axes of the Region. One of the first lines to be built will highly impact the Grand Paris Seine Ouest, touching 5 cities (Boulogne Billancourt, Vanves, Meudon, Sévres and Issy-les-Moulineaux), being already impacted by traffic in a normal situation. The impact of these roadworks is hard to estimate as it will influence many areas of the urban agglomeration. This will also impact on pollution, already high in the Region as many alerts have been necessary all along 2016.
Policy Stage: Issy will be co-creating and testing the PoliVisu solution through all the stages of the cycle.
Data to be Used: Today, existing Big Data in the Region considers Traffic counts, Public Transport, Parking availability, Real Time bus tracking and Bike sharing (Velib’). To improve existing data, Issy is active in stimulating companies and other data providers to give access to data (also in real time).
Collaboration Actions: The validation of project solutions on use of traffic flow visualisations to inform transport policy/operations will be conducted through workshops and activities involving various stakeholders’ groups.
Expected Outcome: The creation of an “easy to use visualisation toolkit” making possible to predict and follow in real time congestion on road segments to help users to make the right decisions and allow them to adopt more sustainable behaviours to lower congestion and any possible issues. Being the planning of the road works huge and often requesting quick actions and reactions, it will be fundamental for all the cities of the Region to have tools to allow quick decision making, shorten reactions and allow detection of any important congestion in real time to make effective communications to users.
Other Issy-les-Moulineaux Case Studies
Issy is a commune in the southwestern suburban area of Paris, France, lying on the left bank of the river Seine. It is one of Paris entrances and is located 6.6 km (4.1 mi) from Notre-Dame Church, which is considered Kilometre Zero of France. On 1 January 2010, Issy-les-Moulineaux became part of the Communauté d'agglomération Grand Paris Seine Ouest, which merged into the Métropole du Grand Paris in January 2016.
Issy-les-Moulineaux has successfully moved its economy from an old manufacturing base to high value-added service sectors and is at the heart of the Val de Seine business district, the largest cluster of telecommunication and media businesses in France hosting the headquarters of most major French TV networks.
