Careful, road work in progress!
Be sure to plan your journeys in advance, as there will be a series of road closures and restricted access this spring to accommodate various events and construction projects.
Closure of the Avenue de Fontvieille in the uphill direction
Until Saturday 1 April at 8 pm, vehicular traffic is prohibited on Avenue de Fontvieille, between Rue du Gabian and Place du Canton in that direction. These provisions do not apply to emergency vehicles, public services and construction sites, or to events requiring the establishment of a traffic pattern favourable to the rapid exit of vehicles. The access and exit of vehicles of the residents car park of the terraces of Fontvieille will follow a marked route.
Testing the Albert II tunnel directions
An initial test to reverse the direction of traffic in the Albert II tunnel will take place on Tuesday the 11th of April, from 10am onwards. Therefore, for example, vehicles coming from Fontvieille will be able to reach the Moyenne Corniche via the Marquet link, then the tunnel Albert II.
As a reminder, the structure, which was opened to traffic in July 2016, enabled traffic during rush hour to be alleviated by roughly 60% along the Jardin Exotique / Boulevard Rainier III.
Maintenance work has been carried out to allow this reversal to happen in case of necessity.
The Albert II tunnel connecting the Boulevard du Jardin Exotique to the Boulevard Rainier III is now in service. The 1,700-meter-long, one-lane tunnel is designed to reduce traffic on the Boulevard du Jardin Exotique, Rainier III Boulevard, Prince Pierre Avenue and the Basse Corniche. Arrangements at both ends of the tunnel make it possible to reverse the direction of traffic if necessary.
