Aix-en-Provence Roadworks Building for the Future

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

The town is at a perfect storm of roadworks right now, according to La Provence, (le chantier est a pleine puisssance) but they say that things should start to improve from here on.

Work on the 7.2km Aixpress bus-route is taking place along its full length, the restructuring and pedestrianisation of the ‘troisplaces’ are ongoing, and a massive dig to provide 600 underground parking places at Jas de Bouffan will take over a year to complete.

…Continue reading here for details on this massive infrastructure project in Aix-en-Provence. The city is definitely building for the future. Although, the short-term construction is challenging for drivers. The long-range plan will benefit visitors and residents with improved pedestrian circulation.

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."
