On paper, the project had it all. A large centralized car park, condensed on seven levels, connected to public transport, all at Y-Parc, the science and technology park of Yverdon which is in full expansion.

To everyone’s surprise, the Transport and Environment Association (ATE) announces in a press release that it has filed an opposition to the investigation of the extension of the Y-Parc shared parking lot. In summary, the soft mobility lobby criticizes the project led by Y-Parc (200 companies, 1,800 jobs), the private sector and indirectly the City of holding more “outdated” company parking than parking lot. multimodal.

The long and documented opposition can delay the silo parking lot for at least several months. And without improvements, the ATE says it is ready to consider legal action. A communication which falls while the investigation of the underground car park of the Place d’Armes, also thousand spaces, in the city center, is awaited firmly. A warning shot in a way.

The beginnings of parking, in 2018, had been accepted by all of Yverdon policy. The file has since been taken over in private hands. It was first a car park shared between the companies on the site with 422 spaces, then a thousand, with investments of 15 million francs. One way to free up space, to anticipate the development of the site, by integrating the small existing P + R.

“In and of itself we have nothing against it. But it’s not a real P + R that would be available to everyone. It is a peripheral parking lot that will attract mainly employees by car and not make them transit in soft mobility to the center: according to the impact report, vehicle traffic will increase, and this from 39% to through the center. It is quite simply the opposite of what must be done, ”suggests the Vaud secretary of the ATE, Romain Pilloud. He continues: “There is a lack of a real study of mobility and real needs, we cannot create a parking lot with 1000 spaces just like that! Such a conurbation entrance zone must be designed in a coordinated manner. ” Not before the start of the new CFF Y-Parc stop (expected in 2025) and with more bus or cycle paths.

General surprise

Reactions? Industrial Services, which dream of installing a large pioneering electric and solar mobility project in this parking lot, are pouting. “The volume of traffic or a postponement does not impact us a priori. The study will take place anyway, ”said municipal Pierre Dessemontet. While the trustee and president of the board of directors of Y-Parc Jean-Daniel Carrard sighs: “These thousand cars, they are already there, like it or not. We are already juggling temporary parking lots everywhere with the arrival of Sylvac, Incyte, and soon Explorit which expects 150,000 visitors a year. If the ATE wanted to intervene, it had to be done before the legal requirements, which provide for 4,000 places in all, of which 50% centralized, were passed. ” The councilor retorts that the site’s mobility analysis is “constantly updated” and that the upcoming inauguration of the first section of the bypass road makes traffic through the city unlikely.

“We are doing a lot for soft mobility, by encouraging shuttles or carpooling, for example, adds Y-Parc director Juliana Pantet. The bus cadence has increased to 7 minutes. But even at 30 seconds, we would still need seats that had been planned for years. It’s just that the development of the park has been faster than expected. ”
