“There is a very strong risk of collapse” at n ° 17, 17 bis and 23, the adjoining buildings, underlines Deputy Mayor Stéphane Pfeiffer, “with a domino effect for n ° 15 and 25”
A week after the collapse of two buildings in the Saint-Michel district, two buildings located near the Porte de Bourgogne gave way on June 21, rue de la Rousselle. The 21 was empty and under construction. But the 19th was occupied and inhabited by nine people. There were three injured. First lesson of the report of the legal expert who inspected on Friday June 25 the collapsed buildings of the rue de la Rousselle, at numbers 19 and 21, “there is a very high risk of collapse” at n ° 17, 17 bis and 23, the adjoining buildings, relays the deputy mayor Stéphane Pfeiffer, “with domino effect for n ° 15 and 25”.
The buildings opposite, on the even side of rue de la Rousselle (20 to 32), are suffering and could suffer impacts due to the collapse and other collapses that could occur, specifies the town hall.
During a press conference this Tuesday afternoon, the elected representative summarized the thirty pages of the expert report commissioned by the City. While it does not give any indication of the origins of the collapse, it gives some deadlines. The owners concerned thus have “ten days” to initiate the first security work necessary for clearing the rubble. Otherwise, the City will replace them to initiate the conservation work which is essential to put an end to the danger, it being specified that these are provisional measures.
About fifteen households in the rue de la Rousselle are supported by the town hall.
