Ambitious Road Work

On The Drawing Boards


With a little over 81.5 million euros
earmarked for projects in 2010, the
Collectivity is embarking on a year
that looks as busy as 2009 for road
work: 14 million euros have been set
aside for the roads, or 17.7% of the
overall public works budget, underlin-
ing the COM's desire to keep up the
fast pace of improving the island's
infrastructure. While this is certainly
good news (some roads were in dire
shape), there is certainly a major
inconvenience as well, in terms of the
impact on traffic in both low and
shoulder seasons.

Completion Of Ongoing
Projects
As of late April, projects that were
interrupted by the advent of the high
season will once again get underway.
This includes the repaving of the road
to the top of Saint Jean (from the inter-
section next to Kiki e Mo).
Major road work in Lurin will also
be continued, widening the road as
well as creating stone walls and a
sidewalk, plus the laying of cable
trays for telephone and electrical
lines. The COM is also putting in
pipes to link 150 additional houses
to the city water system.

New Projects
In addition to those projects started in
2009, the following have been budget-
ed for this year:
- Merlette (above AVM): Improve-
ments includes water pipes as well as a
new transformer to increase electrical
power in the neighborhood.
- Villa Creole-Lorient: Two million
euros to repave the road from Villa
Creole to Lorient, including reshaping
the bad curve called Coupe Gorge and
water pipes that lead directly to the
reservoir in Vitet.
- Camaruche: Long-awaited improve-
ments should take place in 2010: the
steep hill in Camaruche, which is
especially slippery when it rains, will
be completely redone at the cost of
three million euros. In a perfect world,


this would include a sidewalk, but the
Collectivity has to see if this is possi-
ble due to the proximity of houses and
the cost. Last but not least, new tele-
phone lines will improve the over-sat-
urated situation on the windward side
of the island.
- Grand Fond-Petite Saline: For the
residents of Grand Fond, the summer
season will once again mean a big
detour... after completing the lower
part of the road in Grand Fond, the
next section will be the intersection of
Lorient/Saline, which means that resi-
dents will have to detour via Toiny.
The six months of work here is esti-
mated at two million euros, which
includes repaving, sidewalks, and
stone walls in the style of the existing
ones in Grand Fond.
- Anse des Cayes: As residents here
requested sidewalks, the previous
repaving project for the higher part of
the road in Anse des Cayes was post-
poned and will begin again in 2010...
with sidewalks this time, as well as
repaving and cable runs.
- Bridges in Saint Jean and Lorient:
Sophie Olivaud, director of the
island's technical services, does not
hide the fact that repaving these
bridges will cause inconveniences but
she hopes the timeframe will be short.
The bridge in Saint Jean will be less
troublesome as traffic can detour by
the salt pond for the month or so of the


work. The bridge in Lorient is another
story, as it will limit access from
Camaruche to the windward side of
the island: "The bridge has started to
collapse so we must do the work this
year. We are going to see if we can
create a detour via the road past the
church to limit the inconvenience.
If this were not possible, one would
have to go by way of Grand Fond and
risk running into the road work from
Grand Fond to Petite Saline.
RUE DU GENERAL DE GAULLE:
PEDESTRIANS ONLY?
It is not a new idea to transform
the Rue du General de Gaulle into
a pedestrian zone. Back in 2004, it
seemed a done deal but at the last
minute, several businesses chan-
ged their minds, tabling the pro-
ject until a later date.
Today, the Collectivity hopes this
project will help revitalize the center
of Gustavia. Yet democracy rules:
On March 17, Sophie Olivaud will
hold a meeting on the subject. All
businesses are invited to partici-
pate and voice their opinions. The
architectural firm hired by the
technical services office should be
there to present their ideas on the
creation of a pedestrian zone with
handsome urban improvements. If
all are in agreement, the work
would begin in 2010.

AIRPORT: AN INCREASE IN TAXES


Last Thursday a meeting
was help concerning use of
the airport in St. Jean. The
main point of the meeting:
an increase in certain taxes
that have actually not been
raised over the past decade.
This increase is necessary
due to a hole in the airport
budget, as exposed by its
director. In spite of an
increase of 15.35% in rev-
enue due to the collection of
fees due from past years, as
well as better collection of
these fees generally, they
still do not cover the costs
of running the airport,
which increased with the
recent addition of a security
check point for carry-on
bags and passengers. This
alone represents 38% of the
airport's operating budget.


This means that the budget
is met thanks to aid from
the Collectivity, which man-
ages the airport: "The main
goal is to match the expens-
es to the income in order to
establish a balanced budg-
et," notes Fabrice Danet, the
director of the airport. In
looking for a solution that
does not affect the price of
plane tickets at a time when
passenger levels are
decreasing, the director pro-
posed that the increase be
limited to the parking tax
for planes, both based and
non-based in Saint Barth.
As for those based in Saint
Barth, Danet suggested two
options: the first consists of
simply raising the monthly
fees from 61 euros to 120
euros, to which would be


added the landing tax,
which would not increase.
The second option: A glob-
al fee comprising a mini-
mum number of landings
(10 is the suggested num-
ber), to which the parking
fee would be added.
For planes not based in
Saint Barth, the airport
director has suggested a

daily fee, with a simple
increase to reflect inflation
for the first time in 10
years, and taking into
account the special terms
for parking. This would
mean a fee of 12 euros
(compared to the current 4
euros). It is up to the terri-
torial council to decide, as
well as define the criteria
for the notion of planes
based in Saint Barth.

Airport Terminal
To Be Improved
Built in 2000, the air ter-
minal is scheduled for ren-
ovation in 2010, based on
a study for the improve-
ment of certain zones as
well as the facade of the
building. The project
should improve the arrival
area for passengers and
revitalize the terminal into
a more comfortable place.





















in order to let tme wnoie woria know auout
the first edition of Les Voiles de Saint Barth,
La Poste, the French postal service, is issu-
ing a pre-stamped envelope with a visual
image in keeping with this new sailing race
scheduled from April 6-11. "This is a way
for La Poste to help promote an event
organized locally," explains Alfred Hamm,
director of La Poste Saint Barthelemy.
A series of 5,000 envelopes will bear
postage from St Barth to metropolitan
France. They go on sale as of March 15 in
the three post offices on the island, as well
as a postal stand in the race village on the
dock during the regatta, "with a date stamp
to commemorate the event," adds Hamm.


Third Annual Book Festival:
Patrick Poivre d'Arvor And
A Chopin Concert


The third annual book festival
organized by the association,
Saint B'Art, has expanded its pro-
gram and will take place over
eight days, April 12-20, with at
least five authors as special
guests. These include celebrated
French writer and journalist
Patrick Poivre d'Arvor.
Having met with great success
last year, the partnership of
authors and schools will continue
this year, with three children's
authors visiting various classes:
Alex Godard, author and illustra-
tor; Carl Norac, poet and chil-
dren's author; and Bruno Gazzot-
ti, creator of comic strips.
The week's activities will be punc-
tuated by an event featuring actress
Geraldine Danon and French sailor
Philippe Poupon. They will present
a book recently published by
Geraldine, "A Flower In The Ice,"
the story of a voyage that they
made with their four children


aboard Fleur Australe as they
traced the footsteps of Norwegian
Roald Admunsen in attempting to
follow the Northwest Passage that
links the Atlantic and Pacific by
navigating between the Arctic
islands of northern Canada.
One highpoint of the festival is the
fifth annual book exchange to be
held on the dock in front of the
Wall House on Sunday, April 18
Interesting, a concert will close
the book festival on Tuesday,
April 20. A classical music fan
and organizer of a music festi-
val- Les Temps Musicaux in
Ramatuelle, France- for the
past 20 years, Didier Bensa, pres-
ident of Saint B'art, convinced
Patrick Poivre d'Arvor and
acclaimed French pianist Jean
Philippe Collard to present their
joint concert dedicated to
Frederic Chopin, in celebration
of the bicentennial of the birth of
the Polish composer.

Aclassical music fan and organizer of a music festivalÑ Les Temps Musicaux in Ramatuelle, FranceÑ for the past 20 years, Didier Bensa, president of Saint B'art, convinced Patrick Poivre d'Arvor and acclaimed French pianist Jean Philippe Collard to present their joint concert dedicated to FrŽdŽric Chopin, in celebration of the bicentennial of the birth of the Polish composer. In order to let the whole world know about the first edition of Les Voiles de Saint Barth, La Poste, the French postal service, is issuing a pre-stamped envelope with a visual image in keeping with this new sailing race scheduled from April 6-11. "This is a way for La Poste to help promote an event organized locally," explains Alfred Hamm, director of La Poste Saint BarthŽlemy.

They go on sale as of March 15 in the three post offices on the island, as well as a postal stand in the race village on the dock during the regatta, "with a date stamp to commemorate the event," adds Hamm.
