French motorways are going to be improved in a scheme costing a total of one billion euros, once regional authorities have been consulted and given approval, according to the French press.
Part of the cost will be met by increased toll charges, which will rise by less than two percent from 2018 until 2020, the secretary of state for transport, Alain Vidal, told the Journal du Dimanche. The regional consultations, which started on Monday, September 19, will be coordinated by local Prefects.
The money will be used to upgrade major interchanges, create car-sharing facilities in urban areas, and environmental improvements, rather than additional highways. Work is expected to start before the end of 2017 and provide 5,000 new jobs.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
