Resurfacing of asphalt on the Grand Prix circuit

Resurfacing of asphalt on the Grand Prix circuit

A few weeks before the Grand Prix History and Grand Prix Formula 1, the Urban Planning Department will undertake a road repair operation for part of the circuit.

These regular asphalt repairs also allow the Principality to have a particularly well-maintained network of urban roads.

The asphalt used on the F1 circuit has properties that meet the requirements of the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). Its formulation, in particular, is specific to Formula 1, and more efficient in terms of tearing and resistance.

This year, the sections to be resurfaced are: the roundabout Portier and Boulevard Louis II; Boulevard Albert 1er; the road to the pool/Darse north; and the Quai des Etats-Unis.

To minimise the impact to traffic, this work will be carried out mainly at night.
