A full-scale test of reversed traffic flow in the Albert II Tunnel will take place on Tuesday, April 11. The test – the first to be held since the tunnel opened – will start at 10 am.
Vehicles coming from Fontvieille will be able to use the tunnel to access the Moyenne Corniche, using the Marquet link and then the tunnel.
The tunnel was opened in July 2016, and has considerably reduced congestion for drivers coming from the Jardin Exotique into Fontvielle. The Government has said that congestion has been reduced by about 60 percent during the morning rush hour.
The test on Tuesday is intended to iron out any unforeseen problems when traffic flow needs to be reversed. Traffic flow management of this type is integral to the concept of the tunnel.
