The Urban Planning Department held a press briefing on the renovation of the urban networks that will take place on the Boulevard du Jardin Exotique, from October 8th. The event was held in the presence of the various concessionaires who will undertake the works: the Monegasque Company of Electricity and Gas (SMEG), Monaco Telecom, the Monegasque Company of Waters (SMEAUX), the Monegasque Company of Sanitation (SMA ) and the company SIVIA’M.
Jean-Luc Puyo, Director of Urban Planning, said, “These operations concern the renovation of the various networks, obsolete (most of them date back to the 1950s) and undersized, which are now indispensable and will be carried out in stages and the methods used will limit the impact on the traffic and noise.”
Jean-Luc Puyo then listed the main actions that these renovations will allow.
The first phase of the work, programmed in eight micro-phases, will last about six months. It will start on October 8th at the base of the Jardin Exotique, near the Sainte Devote interchange, and will end before the Grand Prix 2019, at the roundabout of the bd of Belgium.
During his annual address to the press, National Council President Stéphane Valeri was optimistic for 2022, saying "there are reasons to hope that we can get back to a quasi-normal life.”
Nice Côte d’Azur airport ended 2021 with over 6.5 million passengers passing through, higher than expected and fuelled mainly by a strong summer season and the return of long-haul flights.
It is expected to be another mild, sunny weekend at the region’s ski resorts with plenty of standing snow, while Valberg will be hosting a Monte-Carlo Rallye event on Friday.
The celebration of Sainte Devote, Monaco’s Patron Saint, will be held next week, and again this year the Principality is taking adapted measures to ensure the health and safety of all who wish to participate.
