Port goes car-free for a day

By Cassandra Tanti - September 17, 2020

The streets surrounding Port Hercule will be closed to all motorised traffic this weekend, giving people in Monaco an opportunity to enjoy ‘Sunday by Bike’.

The Port District of Monaco will be completely closed to cars, buses and other motorised vehicles on Sunday 20th September from 10am to 6pm for a ‘Sunday by Bike’ event being held in honour of European Mobility Week.

The event, organised by the Department of the Environment, aims to promote the use of non-motorised mobility to “re-appropriate” this territory usually occupied by cars. They are encouraging people to come by foot, bicycle, scooter, skateboard, roller skates or any other non-motorised type of transport.

Activities have been set up on the Quay Albert Ier, opposite Rue Princesse Caroline, and include an opportunity to test a bike or electric scooter and a witness a demonstration on how Monabike works.

To ensure everyone’s safety, helmets for under 18s are required whilst riding a scooter or bicycle.

Certain traffic lanes will be closed including Boulevard Albert 1er, part of Avenue JF Kennedy and Route de la Piscine.

Strict compliance with the current health regulations will be enforced and barrier gestures will be in place. Masks are compulsory for all participants who are not involved in a sports activity and hydroalcoholic gel will be available at locations around the venue.
