The local French Department has committed €1.235 million towards the total cost of reopening the off-ramp on the A8 motorway at the Beausoleil services.
The off-ramp is very much needed in order to relieve traffic congestion in La Turbie and to speed up access to Monaco.
The off-ramp, built in 1979, was closed in 1994. The total cost of reopening will amount to €5.5 million, with Monaco contributing 33 percent. The French state will fund most of the remaining amount. Work is due to start next year with a target date for reopening in September 2019.
