New travelators coming soon to the Gare de Monaco

Between now and the end of April 2025, each of the six travelators in the Galerie Prince Pierre, which connects the Gare de Monaco with the Allée Lazare Sauvaigo in the Condamine, will be replaced with a new, hi-tech version.

It’s not uncommon to see one or more of the dated travelators in the Galerie Prince Pierre out of action, but they have had a lot of use over the last 24 years.

The current travelators were installed in the walkway back in 2000. Since then, they have helped transport millions of commuters, visitors and residents of the Principality through the pedestrian walkway, a major thoroughfare in central Monaco, that links the Gare de Monaco train station with the Allée Lazare Sauvaigo in the Condamine neighbourhood.

Beginning on Wednesday 19th June, the Monaco Government will be ripping out the old systems and replacing them with new and improved versions as part of its wider Plan Mobilité that seeks to address the traffic and travel issues felt by many in the Principality.

Over the last four years, the government has replaced 50 other travelators and similar mechanisms in the Principality.

The Galerie Prince Pierre project will take nearly a year to complete, with a deadline being set for 30th April 2025. However, pedestrians can rest assured, say government sources, that there will always be some travelators in operation during the works and the central walkway will remain open for the entirety of the project.
