Monaco is embarking on one of its most ambitious public projects, known as "Opération Ilot Pasteur," which will see the construction of a sprawling complex covering over 100,000 square meters. This massive development aims to provide essential facilities for the residents of Monaco, including a new Charles III College, a revamped Léo Ferré venue, a state-of-the-art public library, and a public parking facility with 900 spaces.
To facilitate this grand project, certain road closures are inevitable. Starting September 18, 2023, through December 22, 2023, the uphill lane of Avenue de Fontvieille will be closed to traffic from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours, traffic will resume in both directions.
Additionally, there will be night-time closures affecting both lanes of the avenue from November 13 to December 22, 2023, between 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM. These closures are for non-disruptive work that requires the avenue to be free of traffic.
Residents living along Avenue de Fontvieille need not worry, as access will be maintained throughout the construction period.
This project marks a significant step in Monaco's urban development, aiming to enhance the quality of life for its residents through the addition of key community facilities. While the construction phase will bring some temporary inconveniences, the long-term benefits promise to make it all worthwhile.
