FRANCE: Veolia lost tender in Lille, France 10Dec10 December 12, 2010

Keolis and Veolia were bidding for the renewal of the current contract (with Keolis) per 1 Jan 2011 for operating the metro, bus and tramway lines in Lille.Association France Palestine Solidarite Nord Pas-de-Calais campaigned against Veolia. And Veolia lost the bid.

The weekly Croix du Nord of 5-11 November 2010 reports the following (article attached). The weekly asked Veolia for comment, and this is what Jérome Simon told Croix du Nord:

Veolia “does not want to make a specific comment”(..) the actions of AFPS “have naturally lightly tainted(or darkened) the image of the company, but we are used to this.” In addition, “when the project was launched ten years ago, it was the tramway  of peace and today it has become the reverse.”
