Landslide shuts down Basse Corniche

By Staff Writer - July 24, 2016

bassecorniche2A landslide that blocked the Basse Corniche for 24 hours over the weekend has been partially removed and the principal road from Nice to Monaco was reopened by 5 pm on Sunday. Traffic lights for alternative flow have been installed between Pont St Jean, just outside Beaulieu-sur-mer and Villfranche. The 100 Nice-Menton bus line is running normally.

Traffic was diverted via the Moyenne Corniche. The Nice-Monaco railway line was not affected on this occasion. Work crews are expected to labour for several days to remove many tons of rock and other debris, as well as to repair the water mains that were cut by the slide.

This same road was also partially closed early Friday morning after a car accident near the Total petrol station in the direction of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat that left a 30-year-old man dead and another man, 42, injured.
