Started in January 2017, the work of this 80-meter link lasted nearly two years, for a budget of 10 million Euros. This is an important work in this underground station already meshed by multiple access to the neighborhoods of Fontvieille and Condamine. 

As Marie-Pierre Gramaglia pointed out during her speech, “This gallery aims to reduce the pedestrian traffic at the exit of the station, on the crossing of the Sainte Dévote bridge, traffic which has the effect of slowing the flow of motor vehicles especially during rush hours in the morning and evening. 

Remember that the station of Monaco is the second most popular of the Côte d’Azur after Nice, counting each year 6.7 million trips, against 2.3 million in 1998.
