BHNS et requalification urbaine : le cas du quartier de gare des bénédictins à Limoges

Abstract : I am used to visit the district of the Bénédictins’ station since I was a child, in fact I often asked my mother to bring me playing to the playground located at the Champ de Juillet. Back then, I was more interested in playing, and not paying attention at all to the surroundings : the Bénédictins’ station, which has nowadays become the symbol of the city of Limoges. I just remember I was already loving this place. Today everything is different, as an urbanism student, I am truly realizing the opportunities of this sector but also its issues. As it looked gorgeous to me when I was a child, it now appears obsolete and old-fashioned. In fact, comparing my child vision to the current one, it looks like nothing has ever changed in this district, everything has been at the same place for more than twenty years. Even if it can appear comfortable because my habits have not changed, my future urbanist’s vision takes over and makes me feel something is wrong. The evolution of the society, of conceptions, of uses, of means of locomotion (…) has transformed cities a lot. Considering all this, it seems obvious that this beloved district has to write a new chapter of its life so it can evolve and adapt to our modern matters. As the Bénédictins’ district is about to be crossed by a BHNS line (High Level Bus Line) in 2023, it seems obvious that this infrastructure will be an opportunity to reconsider this sector of Limoges. Then, it appears logical for us to wonder which type of urban operation could be launched in the Bénédictins station’s area by using the future implementation of the BHNS line as a tool for a deep urban restructuration.
