The City of Luxembourg is currently working on the sewers on Rue de Neudorf. These works are being done in cooperation with:
- VDL – Service Canalisation (Sewer Department): replacement of the drains, construction of shaft pits and sewer clean-outs.
- VDL – Service Eaux (Water Department): rerouting and reconnection of the water conduits in the shaft pits.
- Post Luxembourg: rerouting and reconnection of the networks in the shaft pits.
- Creos Électricité: rerouting and reconnection of the electrical cables in the shaft pits.
- Creos Gaz: rerouting and reconnection of the gas mains in the shaft pits.
- Ponts & Chaussées (National Roads Administration): redevelopment of the road superstructure over the entire construction site.
Commencement of work: January 2016
Planned duration: 685 working days
Planned completion: end of 2020
What is the current traffic situation?
For vehicular traffic:
The City of Luxembourg will ensure that at least one lane of traffic is maintained in each direction throughout the works. As there are traffic lights at several points, the journey time along this stretch will likely increase.
For businesses and deliveries:
Access to private property, as well as to shops and homes, will be guaranteed throughout the duration of the works. City workers will also regulate pedestrian traffic and deliveries throughout the works.
For public transport users:
No changes. Routes will remain unaffected.
As construction progresses, the traffic constrictions will change.
