The Minister of State went to the Jardins d’Apolline on Monday, July 30, to see the progress of ongoing repair work for himself. Serge Telle was accompanied by Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy, Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Infrastructure, Environment and Urban Developmment, Jean-Luc Nguyen, Director of Public Works, Rémy Rolland, Administrator of Domains and Albert Croesi, Chargé de Mission to the Minister of State for Operation Apolline.
This visit underlined the importance of this issue for the Government, which has said it is one of its top priorities.
Faced with the problems suffered by the residents last year, exceptional measures were put in place in terms of temporary relocation and financial support. These measures were motivated by the desire to ensure the durability of the residence in the long term and especially the comfort of the residents, the Government said.
The work being undertaken aims not only to rehabilitate the existing buildings but also to offer 45 additional dwellings thanks to the addition of an extra floor for blocks B and D and two floors for blocks A and C.
