To make life easier for residents while these works are being carried out, the City of Luxembourg has implemented a series of measures, including the option to participate in meetings regarding the progress of the work. Residents affected by the works may participate in these meetings to obtain additional information about the project's progress and present any complaints they may have.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, these meetings may only include a limited number of participants and only take place if all other avenues for resolving a situation have been exhausted.

Nevertheless, such meetings may be organised if needed. Alternatively, a site meeting with the works coordinator and other project partners can be organised upon request. Please get in touch with us if you wish to meet with our project supervisors.
