#citynews #outnow The March edition has information on this ...
The City of Luxembourg is currently carrying out construction to extend the school building, the sports centre and the underground car park in Cents on Rue Léon Kauffman.
Description of the project:
The split-level extension of the school building will include a childcare centre with three play rooms on the ground floor, three early education rooms on the lower floor that leads out onto the outside play area, and six preschool classrooms on the upper floor. It will also include a multi-purpose room, a craft room, a library and an educational kitchen.
The sports centre will include a slightly sunken sports hall measuring 45 by 30 metres, divisible into three sections with bleachers for 186 spectators. It will also be able to serve as a multi-purpose room with a capacity of 460.
The pool, measuring 25 by 15 metres, will be at the same level as the sports hall ceiling. The depth of the swimming pool will be partly adjustable.
The upper level will include a weight-lifting room and a dojo.
The underground car park will have 95 parking spaces and be open to the public.
Commencement of work: November 2016
Planned duration: 33 months
Planned completion: 2020
For vehicular traffic:
The section of Rue Léon Kauffman between Rue Arthur Knaff and Rue Robert Bruch will be completely closed to traffic in both directions from 7 November 2016, as this area will be part of the future school and sports campus. The parking spaces along this section will no longer be available.
Rue Arthur Knaff will be open to two-way traffic from Monday, 7 November 2016.
The car park of the community centre (centre sociétaire) will be closed to the public for the duration of the works.
The parking time limit will be five hours for the spaces located on Rue Robert Bruch (angled parking spaces in front of houses nos. 3–15), on Boulevard Simonis (between houses nos. 109 and 119), and on Rue Gabriel de Marie (between houses nos. 7 and 9).
In addition to the kerbside parking spaces, parents may use the public parking on Boulevard Simonis and Rue Gabriel de Marie to drop off their children.
For the duration of the works, the school bus stop will be temporarily located on Rue Arthur Knaff, across from Rue Joseph Massarette.
However, pedestrian access 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.
As construction progresses, the traffic constrictions will change.
