The local French Department has committed €1.235 million towards the total cost of reopening the off-ramp on the A8 motorway at the Beausoleil services.
The off-ramp is very much needed in order to relieve traffic congestion in La Turbie and to speed up access to Monaco.
The off-ramp, built in 1979, was closed in 1994. The total cost of reopening will amount to €5.5 million, with Monaco contributing 33 percent. The French state will fund most of the remaining amount. Work is due to start next year with a target date for reopening in September 2019.
The Classic Monte-Carlo Rally and the Historic Monte-Carlo Rally have both been cancelled because of restrictions surrounding the Covid crisis.
Nice airport’s traffic fell an astounding 68.4% in 2020. Though alarming, the slow year did allow authorities to rebuild and renovate, getting a jump on creating “the airport of tomorrow”.
The European Union is about to roll out its biggest stimulus package ever seen as focus turns from Covid testing and vaccination to economic recovery.
Monaco’s Covid fatality rate continues to rise sharply, with the death of an 88-year-old woman on Thursday.
Monaco families will very soon have the opportunity to help disadvantaged children prepare for the school year thanks to an innovative initiative created by Click Monaco, in partnership with the Association Les Enfants de Frankie and Stars’n’Bars.
It’s “that” time of the year when children are putting forward their best arguments as to why and how last year’s back pack is no longer suitable for them and a new one is in order. This is why Click Monaco has initiated this unprecedented campaign: #DonneTonAncienCartable (Give me your old backpack), which of course won’t help you avoid rentrée shopping all together but will allow you to do so with some peace of mind.
Kate Powers, co-owner of Stars’n’Bars, says, “We are really delighted with Click’s very original idea of ‘recycling’ to benefit less fortunate children … and also help the planet by reducing waste.”
Based in Monaco, Click Monaco is a unique platform for classified ads regrouping all types of goods and services for sale, but also more importantly in this case: donations. This campaign launches Sunday September 4, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, at Stars’n’Bars, in order for everyone to deposit last year’s backpack, while enjoying a sunny afternoon on the Port Hercule. All bags collected that day will be distributed on September 7 in Nice by Les Enfants de Frankie.
