Work will be undertaken, starting in the next few days, to increase the capacities of the sewage and stormwater systems in the Fontvieille district. Construction will start at the Giratoire des Papalins, to go up Avenue Albert II, then Avenue de Fontvieille.
"This restructuring of wastewater networks is now necessary in this neighbourhood with the implementation of the Pasteur operation and tomorrow that of Charles III" said Olivier Lavagna, Director of Public Works, adding: “Over the decades the urbanisation of The Principality, whether it be public housing, residential buildings, or offices, needs to adapt all the networks to the growth of these resident populations, employees or visitors.”
This work also involves the installation of a 1-metre diameter pipe designed to collect rainwater from upstream of Pasteur, Charles III and Canton. These waters rejoin at the port of Fontvieille and then are discharged at sea.
"Some of the stormy weather, and sometimes critical thunderstorms see thousands of litres of rainwater coming from the watersheds around the Principality. We have experienced heavy rain events that show the importance of having a network calibrated to respond to these changing weather conditions,” said Jean-Luc Puyo, Director of Urban Development.
The State Services in charge of this project have implemented a phasing programme in order to limit the impact on road and pedestrian traffic, especially on sports evenings at Stade Louis II.
The first work will start on Monday, April 3, at the roundabout ave. Albert II/ave. des Papalins.
A Romanian citizen with a criminal record in Spain, France and Monaco was detained on Wednesday, November 9, by the Giurgiulesti-Galati Border Police officers. Monaco had previously issued an arrest warrant against him for attempted theft.
The press service of the Border Police said that they identified a Romanian citizen, aged 25, residing in the city of Galati, in the Moldavia region in eastern Romania, who was internationally wanted. The guards found that he was listed in the Interpol database for several crimes. He was subsequently found to have criminal records for thefts in France and Spain, as well as the outstanding arrest warrant in Monaco.
According to sources within the Border Police, the Romanian citizen had been recently released from a prison in France.
The Romanian citizen was arrested and placed in remand. Subsequently, the court will establish the day of his extradition to Monaco.
