Road closures as Pasteur work continues

Continuing work on the Pasteur neighbourhood will necessitate a number of temporary road closures. The avenue de Fontvieille will be closed in both directions in August. The pavement that runs along Charles III Boulevard and the pergola that overlooks avenue de Fontvieille will be closed to foot traffic from Monday, July 31.

Also from Monday, the downhill direction of Avenue de Fontvieille will be closed from the Canton inner roundabout to the intersection with rue Gabian in order to safely destroy the concrete. For residents, traffic will be allowed in both directions on a single lane to the SMEG building. For the safety of pedestrians, the stairs between the avenue de Fontvieille and boulevard Charles III will also be closed until August 26.

During the closure of avenue de Fontvieille, subscribers to the Terrasses de Fontvieille car park will be relocated to the Fontvieille Shopping Centre. The upstream direction along avenue de Fontvieille will be restored from Monday, August 28 to Thursday, August 31.

For the Monaco-Marseille football match on Saturday, August 26, downhill traffic will be temporarily reopened and closed again from Monday, August 28 to Thursday, August 31, for the repair of the asphalt between the Canton interior traffic island and Le Méridien.

The redevelopment of the Pasteur neighbourhood is due to finish by 2020 and will involve the complete rehousing of the Charles III Collège, and the relocation of the Espace Léo Ferré, the multimedia library and La Poste’s sorting office. Offices are to be built and there will be 900 new parking places.
