Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole Urban Community (Communauté d’agglomération Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole)
France | Local/public authority
Intermunicipal public structure bringing together 26 communes (cities), represented by elected members. It facilitates those communes’ means to manage, invest in- and carry through collective project.
Our Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole urban community undertakes to implement a voluntarist road safety policy throughout the area, in a multiform travel approach and in a spirit of balanced sharing of road responsibility, first focusing on promoting and securing access to methods of transport other than car transport (pedestrian, bicycle and public transport), which are the urban modes of transport to be favoured above all.
It is based on four types of action:
Creating, under the authority of the Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole region, safe facilities for bicycles and pedestrians. There are currently 260 km of cycle facilities, and the aim is to create 400 km of cycle facilities (cycle paths and routes, bridges, etc.) between 2005 and 2010.
Encouraging councils to create accessibility and safety facilities and 30 km/hour zones, with the financial and technical support of the Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole region. The objective is to achieve the gradual generalisation of accessibility concepts and sharing road responsibility in urban areas. The annual budget set aside for these actions by the Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole region amounts to two million euros.
Setting up an accidentology observatory within the urban territory in order to monitor, on a regular basis, the effects of our policy on travel safety, particularly on the number of accidents and victims per year.
Carrying out road safety training and awareness actions among the public, particularly young people. These will take the form of:
Actions carried out directly by the Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole region: participation in the national road safety week, carrying out poster campaigns, publishing press dossiers, articles in local newspapers, etc.
Actions carried out by user associations to which the Grenoble-Alpes-Métropole region contributes financial and technical support: operation “Going to school by bike and on foot”, carried out at three primary schools and one secondary school in 2005, renewed annually, aiming in particular to initiate children in the field of road safety; educational workshop activities on the theme of the environment, travel and road safety: a total of 150 activities for 2005, renewed annually; various forms of support depending on the projects submitted each year.
