Preparatory work on the major Testimonio II development will start soon and involve major changes to traffic patterns at the eastern end of boulevard du Larvotto.
A temporary bridge will be built over avenue Princesse Grace, resulting in a provisional one-way system between the Roccabella and the small roundabout to the right of the Monte-Carlo Bay.
Road users travelling towards Monte-Carlo will be diverted to boulevard d’Italie. Access to the Meridien Beach Plaza, the Roccabella and the Summer Sporting will be available only to traffic travelling eastwards towards the French border. However, the car parks for these buildings will be open throughout the work.
Three bus stops will be suspended, Plages, Sea Club and the Larvotto terminus. The Plages bus stop, close to the Estoril, will become the terminus for the 5 and 6 bus routes. The 110 airport shuttle will operate normally towards Menton, but the 110 travelling from Menton west to the airport will run along boulevard d’Italie.
The diversions will start on Monday, October 24, and last for seven months.
The Testimonio II development will involve the building of 150 homes for Monegasques, the relocation of the International School of Monaco, a number of private homes, a new green space, and parking for 700 vehicles.
