MOTORWAYS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

AUTOROUTES ET ENVIRONNEMENT

EXTRACT FROM JOURNEES D'ETUDES ET D'INFORMATIONS, SECAP, PARIS, MAY 1979. THE PAPER DEFINES THE PROBLEM OF MOTORWAYS AND THE ENVIRONMENT, ILLUSTRATING THE GREAT CHANGES CAUSED BY MOTORWAY CONSTRUCTION AT A GIVEN SITE. IT ANALYSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FRENCH MOTORWAY NETWORK AND THE NOTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT, TRACING THE DEVELOPMENT OF IDEAS AND THE HISTORY OF REGULATIONS, ELABORATED FROM TIME TO TIME IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE SITES, TO AVOID WHEREVER POSSIBLE INCONVENIENCE TO THE NEIGHBOURHOOD AND PARTICULARLY TO THE RURAL POPULATION NECESSARILY RESTRICTED IN ITS WORK. THE ANALYSIS OF CURRENT LEGISLATION SHOWS THE MEASURES TO BE TAKEN FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE PROJECT AND FOR THE NECESSARY COLLABORATION BETWEEN DESIGNERS AND ENVIRONMENTALISTS. ARBITRATION BETWEEN CONSTRUCTION NEEDS AND THE RESPECT OF THE ENVIRONMENT IS DIFFICULT BUT POSSIBLE. IT IS NECESSARY TO EVALUATE THE MEASURES TO BE TAKEN WELL IN ADVANCE OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROJECT.
