Monaco businesses face a challenge on Friday, June 16, as rail commuters from Italy struggle to find alternative means of getting to the Principality. A national rail strike by Italian rail workers will mean that no trains will travel between Ventimiglia and Menton during the day, and a number of scheduled trains from Menton to Monaco Monte-Carlo have also been cancelled.
There will be a knock-on effect on the Friday evening commute from Monaco to Nice, with the cancellation of the normally very busy 4:19 pm service. There will be no trains running from Monaco beyond Menton on Friday evening, and the 4:15 pm service to Menton has also been cancelled. Friday is the traditional day for Italian rail strikes.
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.
Prince Albert has warned the National Council that its criticism of his government’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic is unnecessarily escalating the tension and uncertainty surrounding the crisis.
