Bicycle and Pedestrian “Feeder” paths from Coromandel Station to near Foyer, Petite Riviere

13.02.2020

Open Letter from LALIT to Prime Minister, Hon. Pravind Jugnauth


Re: Bicycle and Pedestrian “Feeder” paths from Coromandel Station to near Foyer, Petite Riviere


Dear Sir,


In the context of the Metro Express feeder networks and parking lots that rightly aim to decrease the use of fossil fuel vehicles, and in the context of the stated “national bicycle policy framework” mentioned in the Program Speech on 24 January 2020, as well as in the context of the physical health and well-being of us all, we in the Richelieu Branch, on behalf of LALIT, would like to propose the following development:


1. The construction of a dual path – bicycle lane on the outer edge and pedestrian lane alongside on the inner edge – all the way, uninterrupted by traffic, from the area of the Foyer Fiat on the outskirts of Petite Riviere (towards the Gros Cailloux side) on the land that makes the border on the Eastern side of Petite Riviere and Cite Richelieu up to the Coromandel Metro Station. (See Google map and photo enclosed). The walking time is estimated at 20 to 30 minutes. No motorized, including electric, vehicles should be allowed.


2. More safe space with locks for parking bicycles at the Coromandel Station.


3. Designation of one part of a Metro carriage for parking bicycles during the ride. Interestingly, this was so on the old train system in Mauritius. And it is so in many countries today.


This will be of immediate use to Petite Riviere and Richelieu people, esp. workers and students.


The plan should also include parking at the outer end (near the Foyer Fiat) so that people from Albion, Gros Cailloux, Canot and Bambous, for example, can benefit from this bicycle and pedestrian path if they can transport their bicycles to the Parking spot, then ride (or walk, jog, run) to the Coromandel Station. The plan can later be extended to Bambous. There is already the beginning of a bicycle and pedestrian pathway constructed by Medine from Bambous to Cascavelle Mall to help with further extensions.


This development could become the national prototype.


Yours sincerely,
