Environmental analysis (PND, ZNIEF, EBC, PPRI), Sophia-Antipolis

The Sophia Antipolis Technopole is growing rapidly, resulting in increased travel needs despite saturated infrastructure. The environmental analysis entrusted to Citec aims to identify the challenges and impacts on the natural environment of the proposed solutions: new roadblocks, new infrastructures for BRT or cyclists. The technopole is integrated into a natural area rich from the point of view of fauna and flora, which is an element of the landscape and identity of the park. This context is a source of potential risks to be taken into account in order to protect the people, infrastructure and spaces present on the territory.
