Pedestrian tunnel in Monaco to relieve congestion


A major construction project is about to start at one of Monaco’s busiest road junctions. From February 13, preliminary work will begin on the corner of boulevards Princesse Charlotte and Suisse in order to facilitate the excavation of a pedestrian tunnel to and from the railway station.

This ambitious project is intended to relieve congestion that pits pedestrians against traffic at the present exit to the station. The Sainte Devote bus stop in front of the Armida Palace will be moved about 20 metres onto the bridge, before returning to its present position after the end of the work, which is expected to last 22 months.

During this period, part of the sidewalk will be closed, while a number of parking places will also be lost. Some major work, including the installation of temporary construction site buildings, will take place at night.
