Traffic on one of Monaco’s main roads is being rerouted as construction of a new property development commences on Avenue Prince Pierre.
According to a recent press release by the Princely Government, State Services are working to limit the impact on the key route as preliminary work begins at 2-4-6-8 Avenue Prince Pierre. The first stage of construction for the future private property development is scheduled to take place from 4 September to 22 December 2023, resulting in detours and changes to the road system.
“Pedestrian and vehicle traffic will be maintained on the main routes, although diversions will be in place during various phases,” states the Princely Government’s press release.
Full Schedule of the works and detours
The Rue de la Turbie will be closed to traffic from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm from 4 to 22 September. The Agaves car park will remain accessible via Rue Augustin Vento and Rue Auréglia, and business deliveries can be made outside these times.
There will be a temporary change of parking arrangements for two-wheelers, deliveries, police, taxis, and hotels on the adjacent streets from 25 September to 22 December. There will be a lane closure at the top of rue Grimaldi, on a section of the Place d’Armes roundabout at the corner of Avenue Prince Pierre and on Avenue Prince Pierre. The removed parking spaces will be relocated nearby, including the two-wheeler parking area which will be moved to Rue du Rocher.
Following the closure of one of the two lanes on Avenue Prince Pierre, Boulevard Charles III will be open to traffic in both directions between the Place d’Armes and Canton roundabouts from 4 September.
Once the preparatory works have been completed, the project will commence at the beginning of the new year.
