One of the fastest points in the Circuit de Monaco and an area prone to accidents, the sweeping Louis-II tunnel is now equipped with nine video surveillance cameras, all installed by the princely government in recent months.

The completion of the camera installation comes just over a year after the tragic accident in the Principality’s tunnel that claimed the lives of three individuals in their thirties, in which the driver of a performance SUV crashed into a concrete barrier of the tunnel at speeds of up to 156 km/h, having consumed alcohol and cocaine at one of Monaco’s nightlife venues before getting behind the wheel.

Without these public cameras in place, the police had to make use of private cameras when investigating the terrible incident.

The installation of public cameras makes the speedy Louis-II tunnel that much safer, following on from the creation of a 430 metre-long cycle lane.
