One of the main planks of the Government’s anti-congestion plan revealed at the end of last week is the proposed Les Salines car park, strategically positioned at the top of Jardin Exotique, close to the entrance to Monaco from Cap d’Ail.

Able to accommodate 1,820 cars and served by local buses, Les Salines car park is designed to capture incoming tourist traffic as well as commuters. it will be the biggest parking structure in the Principality.

Minister of Infrastructure and Urban Planning Céline Caron-Dagioni said that the Government will offer lower rates for parking at Les Salines as an incentive to drivers to avoid parking their vehicles in the centre of Monaco.

A monthly fee of 51 euros will be considerably lower than the 100 euros plus monthly rates in more central car parks.

The plan is to have Les Salines operational in time for the Monaco Grand Prix in May.
