It was almost 8:20 a.m. Wednesday May 22, 2024 when a cloud of dust invaded Rue Nationale in Trie-Château, just a few meters from the fortified gate of the town.

No victims

Fortunately, the man witnessed the scene safely on the opposite sidewalk.

The fall of the wall caused no casualties.

Since the disaster, the road has been blocked in both directions, and the fortified gate is no longer accessible to traffic.

Grilles surround the site of the disaster during the work which will allow the destruction of the remaining section of wall and the framework.

The owner

“I thank all the stakeholders who were really there from the first minutes” testifies the owner of the collapsed farmhouse.

His housing project has not been abandoned, however.

“We will have to adapt, and instead of renovating the building, we will have to rebuild. But we will do it, respecting the style of the buildings and reusing as much as possible the stones that have collapsed.”
