Vital and important updates to public infrastructure and roads will necessitate widespread road closures affecting almost every party of Monaco over the coming weeks. Here’s a rundown of the areas impacted.
In November, and in some cases into December, Monaco will be running numerous maintenance operations on its roads, which will require significant closures and diversions.
Road re-tarmacking is high on the agenda between 6th and 23rd November, and in total, nine sectors will be affected at different times.
The works will generally occur between 8pm and 6am in order to limit impact on traffic circulation, and the government endeavours to only take one or two nights to complete each area, with the intention of limiting noise and disruptions as much as is possible.
The Ruelle du Fort Antoine was up first from 6th to 8th November, when traffic was alternated on Avenue Saint Martin, then it was onto the Boulevard Charles III and Avenue du Port via Place d’Armes on 8th and 9th November.
Next comes Rue de la Colle, which will be fully closed to road traffic on the night of 9th November. The tunnel leading to Fontvieille will also be affected and diversions are in place on Avenue Prince Pierre.
A slight alteration of hours will be seen on the night of 13th into 14th November on Avenue Princesse Grace, when the works will take place from 10pm to 6am. No traffic will be allowed on the road, and diversions and a ban on parking on the portions of the avenue concerned will be implemented.
From 8pm to 1am on the same night, Boulevard Saint Michel will be totally closed to traffic. Diversions will be put in place as well as alternating traffic on Rue des Roses and Boulevard Princesse Charlotte.
The Boulevard du Jardin Exotique and Boulevard de Belgique will be shut to all traffic, with a ban on parking on a portion of the roads concerned, on the nights between 14th and 16th November. Diversions will be organised as well as alternating traffic on Rue Bosio and at the start of Boulevard du Jardin Exotique. Access to the Bosio carpark will be maintained.
On 16th into 17th November, the Rue Honoré Labande will be subject to total traffic closures and a parking ban.
Avenue des Papalins will see a closure to traffic from N°9 to N°13 from 21st into 22nd November. As the Papalins car park is located within the works area, the Public Parking Service will be offering subscribers suitable parking elsewhere.
Finally, Rue du Portier will be closed to traffic on 22nd into 23rd November.
In all affected sectors, necessary pedestrian traffic diversions will be marked and the bus lines impacted by the works will be diverted.
The tunnel lighting rehabilitation campaign, launched on 10th July, also continues, with new lighting being installed in the Tunnel Belgique at the entry of the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace.
The work will take place from 21st November to 22nd December, with alternating traffic on the affected street from 8.30am to 4pm. Delivery and bicycle parking will not be accessible during this period.
Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
