Aix-en-Provence: News from the Excavations Construction Update

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

What a mess the town centre is right now what with the travaux for the new bus route and the simultaneous archaeological dig and renovations at the Place des Precheurs. But then no pain no gain…no omelettes without breaking eggs, and all that good stuff.The bus drivers seem to be bearing the situation with truly Provencal shrugs, at least the ones I have talked to, but in the week Madame le Maire Marysse Joissains was ambushed by about 50 people who run businesses around the Place des Precheurs.Aix-en-Provence Construction

…Continue reading here for details on this large infrastructure project in the heart of the old town of Aix-en-Provence. To say that this construction work is challenging would be an understatement. The site is home to several existing businesses that remain open during the work, and the discovery of medieval foundations has required planning and adjustments to the timeline.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
