In order to host the Monaco Yacht Show, an essential event for the yachting sector and with significant economic benefits for the Principality, the assembly of the installations begins on September 2, 2023, Monaco’s Government said on Wednesday, August 30.
Focused on the Port Hercule area, the main axes affected by the restrictions linked to the installation of the Show will be the Quai des Amériques/Avenue JF Kennedy, the Route de la Piscine and the Quai Antoine Ier (as of September 11 2023 for the latter), as well as the various quays of the Port.
Parking bans will be necessary to begin the work as well as adjustments to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, sometimes with total shutdowns over a few days. However, constantly improving each year, thanks to sustained consultation between State Services and the organisers, measures will be put in place to streamline traffic during peak hours.
Occasional easing of restrictions will allow schoolchildren to be dropped off nearby and the implementation of temporary traffic patterns will facilitate deliveries.
Two two-wheeled parking spaces will also be created from the date of occupation of Quai Antoine I, September 11, 2023: – Avenue de la Quarantaine; – and within the La Digue Public Car Park (contact the Reception Office for access conditions). The spaces will gradually be returned to the public from October 1, 2023 for a return to normal from October 12, 2023.
