As the Principality winds down from the summer tourism rush in early September, the push will be on to get Port Hercule ready to host the most prestigious boat event in the world, the Monaco Yacht Show, which is also due to draw in huge crowds.
This year, the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) will be held from Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th September. The event attracts a lot of people to the Principality, and with that comes a significant amount of money for the local economy.
Taking over the entire Port Hercule, a number of weeks’ worth of work is necessary to host the enormous event. As a result, the main areas to be impacted by installation works from Saturday 2nd September is Quai des Etats-Unis/Avenue J.F. Kennedy, and la Route de la Piscine and Quai Antoine 1er from 11th September, as well as various quays of the port.
Parking bans will be in place as as well as restrictions and diversions for vehicle and pedestrian traffic, sometimes with total shutdowns over a few days.
“However, constantly improving each year thanks to sustained consultation between State Services and the organisers, measures will be put in place to streamline traffic during peak hours,” said the government in a statement. “Occasional easing of restrictions will allow school children to be dropped off nearby and the implementation of temporary traffic patterns will facilitate deliveries.”
Two two-wheeled parking spaces will also be created on Quai Antoine 1 from 11th September on avenue de la Quarantaine and within the La Digue Public Car Park.
The spaces will gradually be returned to the public from 1st October for a return to normal from 12th October.
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
