Multipolarités urbaines et intermodalité : les pôles d'échanges, un enjeu pour la coopération intercommunale ?

Abstract : “Interchange station”, which is at the city/transportation interface, has emerged in recent years as a central theme in research concerning relationship between transportation networks and urban territories. This research shall analyze the importance of interchange station for the new cooperation between municipalities which were recently created in France ; particularly the « communautés d'agglomération », massively built up following the French “Chevènement” law (1999).

Answering this problem, we will examine on a national scale the way the inter-municipal authorities “think about” interchange station through map representation of transportation networks and urban travel plans. In addition to this panorama, we will conduct a complementary detailed study of the organisational layout of interchange station in two urban regions, Saint-Étienne and Valenciennes.

This research demonstrates the possibility to emphasize the role of interchange station in the setting of agglomeration identity. These nodes represent political power matter while constituting places of uncertainty for local public action. The analysis also points the intercommunality difficulties in the projects which exceed the strict framework of its competences and its perimeter. So the interchange station can hardly be considered in France institutional context as a real interface between urbanism and public transport.
