As of Monday, the Department of Urban Development is undertaking major work on the sewerage network at the busy intersection of Avenue de la Madone and Avenue des Spélugues, which is scheduled to last for seven weeks.

Due to the scale of the work, alternate traffic has been set up for the duration of the operation. In order to limit waiting times for vehicles, traffic flows will be operated manually during the day and by traffic lights at night.
