The Testimonio II Project: Launch of Preparatory Work
By 2021, the Testimonio II project, situated in the east of the Principality, will include public lifts linking the Boulevard Princesse Grace, the Boulvevard du Larvotto and the Boulevard d'Italie.
The Testimonio II project will provide:
- 150 units of State housing
- an international school with 700 pupils
- a 50-place crèche
- a new landscaped public area to replace the existing.
A programme of private housing will complete the project.
A car park with approximately 900 spaces will meet the needs of users and residents. Parking spaces will also be reserved for users who wish to leave their vehicles in order to travel in the Principality on public transport.
To meet these aims, the start of construction work will necessitate the permanent closure of the steps that currently link the Boulevard Princesse Grace, the Boulvevard du Larvotto and the Boulevard d'Italie. Users of these steps are invited to take the pedestrian walkway that passes via the public lifts of the Carmes Chapel and the Carmes building (see attached map).
In addition, the public park situated on the Boulevard d'Italie, which extends from the bus turning area, will also be permanently closed.
The closure date for the steps and the public park is set for Monday 14 March 2016.
