Resurfacing work on Grand Prix circuit

With a few weeks to go until the Historic Grand Prix and the Formula 1 Grand Prix, the Department of Urban Amenities will carry out road resurfacing work on part of the circuit, as it does every year.

In addition to the work carried out for the Grand Prix events, these regular resurfacing efforts mean that the Principality has a particularly well-maintained urban road network.

The surface used on the F1 circuit has properties which meet the requirements of the Fédération Internationale du Sport Automobile, and is specifically formulated for Formula 1 cars to drive on, with enhanced performance particularly in terms of wear and resistance.

This year, the sections concerned are: the Portier roundabout and Boulevard Louis II; Boulevard Albert I; Route de la Piscine/northern dock; Quai des Etats-Unis.

The resurfacing work comprises two phases:

  • - planing of the top portion of the roadway to a depth of 5 cm

- application of a layer of asphalt and reconstruction of the roadTo minimise the impact on traffic as far as possible, the work will mainly take place at night, according to the following schedule:

 

Portier roundabout and Boulevard Louis II

Phase 1: overnight from Monday 26 to Tuesday 27 March 2018 (8 pm to 6 am)

Phase 2: overnight from Tuesday 27 to Wednesday 28 March 2018 (8 pm to 6 am)

This work will require the closure of Boulevard Louis II from 8 pm to 6 am, between Portier roundabout and Avenue President J.F. Kennedy. From Route de la Piscine, the road will be closed to traffic starting at the T Central dock. Bus routes which use Boulevard Louis II will be diverted from 8 pm onwards. Parking on the section of the road affected by the work will not be permitted on these two nights.

 

Boulevard Albert I

Phase 1: overnight from Tuesday 27 to Wednesday 28 March (8 pm to 6 am)

Phase 2: overnight from Wednesday 28 to Thursday 29 March (8 pm to 6 am)
