AGORA welcomes Pierre Maudet, State Councillor in charge of the Department of Health and Mobility of the Canton of Geneva. On February 16, 2024, a delegation from the Canton of Geneva (CH) was welcomed in Belval by AGORA Vice President Bruno Théret and AGORA Director General François Dorland. This visit is part of a constructive exchange on the issues of urban mobility and sustainable development.

The objective of this meeting was to present AGORA’s flagship projects, illustrating urban transformation in Belval and Metzeschmelz. These initiatives demonstrate AGORA’s commitment to redesigned mobility and sustainable urban planning, aligned with the visions of the National Mobility Plan 2035 (PNM2035):

Belval: A new mobility concept

In Belval, the delegation discovered the efforts to integrate the rapid tram, the high-level bus services corridor (CHNS), and cycle paths, revealing an ambition to reduce the prevalence of individual motorized traffic in favor of greener alternatives. The updating of the mobility masterplan aims to create a balanced living environment, promoting environmentally friendly travel and public transport.

Metzeschmelz: Vision of a car-scarce neighborhood in Luxembourg

The Metzeschmelz project was presented as an example of a neighborhood where cars will not be a priority, favoring interconnected mobility thanks to infrastructure adapted for cyclists, the CHNS, and the tram. This initiative reflects an innovative approach to encourage sustainable mobility and improve the quality of urban life.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Geneva delegation for their visit to Belval, an initiative marked by the presence and expertise of prominent members in the field of mobility and urban development.
