The consultation with the territories and close involvement of the European Union see the construction of the modern railway infrastructure network as one of the most important applications of the Green Deal, i.e. the European plan to combat climate change.
These are the topics of the second issue of TELT at WORK, the video magazine produced by the public promoter to offer a close look at the issues concerning the construction of the Lyon-Turin railway line, with interviews from Brussels, Turin, Lyon, Maurienne and The Susa Valley. It provides an in-depth analysis of the construction sites progress, with the base tunnel excavation that has now reached 10 km, and of the funding that could reach up to 50% in the next Grant Agreement. It also offers a look at the world of art as an element of connection and innovation in the century-old bond between Turin and Lyon.
This edition starts with ZOOM, which illustrates the France Relance programme and the dialogue established with the territories by the public promoter, and continues with the INSIDE section dedicated to actions to ensure sustainability and TELT’s collaborations with universities and research centres, including the École des Ponts Paris Tech.
With PLATFORM EUROPE we move to Brussels to meet senior officials of the European Directorate for Transport who explain the importance of TENT-T networks within the framework of European policies. An ad-hoc interview is instead dedicated to the circular economy of excavation materials from the Lyon-Turin line. This topic is discussed in detail in ENVIRONMENT FIRST by Eleonora Cesolini and Pascal Schriqui, two of TELT’s managers in this field.
This last part of this edition, the OUTSIDER column, features two women who are leading important art institutes in Lyon and Turin: Estelle Pagès, Director of the École National Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Lyon, and Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, President of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin.
