For the duration of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters tennis tournament, due to start on April 15, the French authorities have issued a municipal by-law with a ban on vehicles with a maximum gross weight of more than 3.5 tonnes on avenue Princesse Grace, from the Saint-Roman interchange to the border of the commune of Roquebrune Cap-Martin with the Principality of Monaco (Monte Carlo Bay).

Due to the uniqueness of boulevard du Larvotto, where coaches are normally parked during the tournament, this French measure means that vehicles with a total authorised weight of 3.5 tonnes or more are forbidden, from April 15 to 23, every day from 8:30 am to 7:30 pm, excluding the coach operators. The exceptional measures are intended to avoid a repeat of the atrocity in Nice last July in which more than 80 people died after being hit by a speeding delivery truck.

Some exceptions may be granted. More information on +377 98 98 85 21 or from the Operational Transmission Control Station (PCTO) at 04 93 15 32 06.
