Statue of Liberty replica in Nice, France

Statue of Liberty replica in Nice, France


A replica of the Statue of Liberty in New York was unveiled February 1, 2014 in Nice by the Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi. The original Statue of Liberty was gifted to the United States by the people of France, and there have since been numerous global replicas. The Nice replica commemorates 100 years since the First World War. The Nice monument is 1.35 meters (about 4.5 feet) high excluding the base. The Nice replica is installed on the Quai des États-Unis (across from the Opera of Nice)..Designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, it will obviously be a lot smaller than the original statue in New York, but it is said to be higher than the one standing in Paris. The original Statue of Liberty in New York was a gift to the United States by the people of France. Many cities around the world already have replicas of the monument such as Las Vegas, Buenos Aires, Rio and Tokyo.

Nice Tramway Line 2

FRANCE: NICE WILL OPEN TRAMWAY LINE 2 in YEAR 2017!


In a surprise move, Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi changed his mind about running Line 2 up the Promenade des Anglais and instead went with a plan that provides an 8.6 kilometer "tram/metro" with 3.6 kilometers below ground. It will cost €'450,000,000 and carry 110,000 - 140,000 daily passengers. It will run between Gare de Riquier and new? Gare Multimodal Saint-Augustin.
Boulevard Rene Cassin / Avenue Californie at the Champion/Carrefour food market has a tramway in its future.
Fifty-three years after the closure of the Tramway de Nice et du Littoral, the Tramway de Nice began to serve its Northern and Eastern sections. 2007 saw the completion of Line 1 serving the North-South needs of the city. Line 2 now addresses the East-West needs. This WebSite will be updated continuously until completion of Line 2 in Year 2016.
Nice Côte d’Azur Tramway

The Central Control Room


"Poste de Commandement Centralisé" or "P.C.C." is located in an office tower above the maintenance center. It is the true nerve center of the network, in operation 24 hours a day.

It manages the tram and bus lines on a real time basis and is directly connected to the trams and the stations by an electronic communications system. Tram locations are obtained by GPS (Global Positioning Satellite).

The Poste de Commandement Centralisé exercises real time flow of the trams (switches, signals, electric sub-stations, etc). The PCC manages communications with travellers (loudspeaker announcements, digital display boards for passenger information, answering calls from the telephones located in stations, etc).

The Poste de Commandement Centralisé is connected to a network of video cameras, and is responsible for travellers' safety in both the trams and the stations.

Required Attire for a Remote Workforce


Ever wonder how your telecommuting colleagues really live? Turns out, many of them actually do work in their pajamas. They also tend to love their work-life balance – to the point where they’d take a pay cut to maintain the status quo. This is a “must read” for both remote workers and for their office-bound managers.
