What is the current traffic situation?
For vehicular traffic:
The affected sections will be closed off to traffic as the project progresses. At all times, a 3.5-metre passage will remain open to cars.
Since the beginning of these roadworks, Rue Marguerite-Séraphine Beving and Rue Vannérus have been closed to all traffic except local residents and suppliers. As of 9 November 2019, Rue Pierre Krier will also be closed to traffic on the section between Rue de Carignan and Rue Jean-Baptiste Gellé for a minimum period of two weeks.
Vehicular access to private property will be maintained as long as physically possible. Pedestrian access and access for emergency services will be guaranteed throughout the duration of the works.
For businesses and deliveries:
The City of Luxembourg will try to ensure access for deliveries to local businesses throughout the duration of the works.
For public transport users:
Buses are once again calling at the stop on Rue Pierre Krier. This will remain the case until works begin on the pavement.
Progress to date
The works are being performed from 7:00 to 18:00 by a consortium of two contractors (SOGEROUTE/KUHN).
How long will the work take?
Planned completion: April 2021
What work has already been completed?
Works to lay temporary gas mains on Rue Henri Vannérus and Rue Marguerite-Séraphine Beving have been completed. Works to lay temporary pipes on the even-numbered side of Rue Xavier de Feller have been completed.
What remains to be done?
The installation of temporary water and gas mains on the odd-numbered side, part of the work on the sewer network, and the installation of new water and gas mains on Rue Xavier de Feller. Before performing roadworks on Rue Xavier de Feller, the contractor must perform works on the dry utility networks under the pavement. Afterwards, the contractor will carry out works on the water and gas networks on the even-numbered side of the road, under the intersection of Rue des Près and Rue Xavier de Feller in the direction of Rue Marguerite-Séraphine Beving.
