Makeover of Casino Square to dramatically change the look of Monte Carlo

Fontvieille works start Monday

Fontvieille works start Monday

By Staff Writer - January 14, 2017

Plan deviation pietonsAs part of Operation Pasteur, the demolition of the pergola along boulevard Charles III and the former municipal workshops along the avenue de Fontvieille, will begin on Monday, January 16, 2017.

To achieve this destruction under optimum safety conditions, scaffolding will be installed on the avenue de Fontvieille. Also, the uplink will be closed until mid-March 2017, while the downhill use of the avenue will be maintained throughout the duration of the work.

As a security measure, the Fontvieille staircase will also be closed during the demolition and pedestrians will be invited to take the stairs of Le Méridien 100 metres away.

Work will begin on connecting the Pasteur operation to the wastewater and storm water networks in the Fontvieille district.

“This restructuring of wastewater networks is now necessary in this district,” said Olivier Lavagna, Director of Public Works. He added: “Over the decades, the urbanisation of the Principality, whether it concerns public housing, residential buildings or offices, requires adapting all the networks to the increased resident, employee or visitor population.”

Jean-Luc Puyo, Director of Urban Development, commented, “Over the years, significant storms, even critical ones, have seen thousands of litres of rainwater arrive from the watersheds around the Principality. We have experienced flood events that show the importance of having a network calibrated to respond to these changing weather conditions.”

The state services in charge of this project have implemented phasing to limit the impact on road and pedestrian traffic in this neighbourhood, especially when sporting fixtures are being held.
