Three projects to facilitate entry into Monaco

Traffic between Nice and Monaco is frequently congested during peak hours and has been a major concern for many years. However, several ways are being considered to streamline traffic in the future. Let’s take a closer look at three of them.

1. Moyenne Corniche Underpass

With nearly 50,000 commuters traveling to Monaco daily from Nice or Menton, Moyenne Cornish is prone to frequent traffic jams every day, significantly increasing the travel time of cross-border workers.

In response to this traffic jam, an underpass project was designed by the Principality’s Public Works Department. It consists of creating a mini-tunnel in the Moyenne Cornish at the intersection with Avenue General de Gaulle. However, the project that Cap d’Ail mayor Xavier Beck is not enthusiastic about.

“Given the considerable turmoil caused by the road construction of this main road to the Principality, we do not support it.” He explained. “The construction period is expected to last 12 to 18 months and will have little impact on the reduction of traffic in the morning. The only advantage is that it will reduce the traffic leaving the Principality more quickly in the late afternoon. You can do it. “

An underground road that saves drivers 4 to 7 minutes on their journey.

2. Beausoleil highway ramp

This is one of the most awaited projects, and it’s also the first project you need to complete. The new highway ramp (called Beausoleil, but located in the municipality of La Turbie) acts as an interchange point between the A8 highway and the sectoral network (RD 2564-Grande Corniche) for other access to the Principality. Provides some breathing space.

“It should also be an improvement for workers from Nice,” added Mayor Cap Daiyu. Work on the project is expected to be completed later this year.

3. New layout of hospital roundabouts

As a result of this new highway ramp, the number of cars around the hospital will increase. The roundabout will change to accommodate this. I’m trying to expand from my current location and move up.

“Obviously, it’s more efficient to create a new lane,” he said, abandoning the 25-space parking lot between the roundabout and Jardin Exotic, with one outgoing lane and two incoming lanes. Xavier Beck admits that he has proposed to give way to. “If you implement this solution, you will need to replace the lost public parking space with a new one in the new parking lot near Jardin Exotique.”

Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2022, or at the latest in early 2023, when the Beausoleil lamp opens.

The mayor of Cap d’Ail was cautious about this. “The trajectory has not yet been determined, and it is compatible with various administrative regulations and environmental restrictions.”

According to Xavier Beck, one of the best solutions to alleviate traffic congestion between the Western Alps-Mari Times and Monaco is Riviera Metro.. However, the previously stopped subway line between Rikie Station on the eastern side of Nice and the Principality does not seem to be on the card anymore. At this point.
