Ahead of a new building project, there will be some considerable disruptions to road and pedestrian traffic on Avenue Prince Pierre from September. Here’s what to expect.
Monaco’s State Services have put out an advanced notice on the disruptions to the flow of traffic along Avenue Prince Pierre, the major road leading up from Place d’Armes towards the Lycée Rainier III, due to the commencement of a future private real estate project in the area.
The site, located between 2 and 8 Avenue Prince Pierre, will be affected from Monday 4th September to Friday 22nd December. Via a communiqué, the government has sought to reassure residents and those passing through the neighbourhood that “the flow of pedestrians and vehicles will be maintained throughout the duration of the construction site on the major axes”, adding that some deviations, however, should be expected according to the different phases of the project.
PLANNED DISRUPTIONS AND DIVERSIONS
From Monday 4th to Friday 22nd September, expect road closures from 9am to 4pm on Route de la Turbie. Access to the Agaves carpark will be possible via Rue Augustin Vento and Rue Auréglia. Deliveries to businesses can be made outside of these hours and should be scheduled ahead of time.
From Monday 25th September to Friday 22nd December, all parking will temporarily be suspended on the streets adjacent to the site. One traffic lane towards the top of Rue Grimaldi, a portion of the Place d’Armes roundabout and a lane on Avenue Prince Pierre will also be closed. The parking nearby on Rue du Rocher will be unaffected.
As of Monday 4th September, and for the duration of the works, Boulevard Charles III will be open to traffic in both directions between the Place d’Armes roundabout and the Place du Canton to compensate for the closures on Avenue Prince Pierre.
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
