Infrastructural works in the old town

The work that began last November in the Old Town is still ongoing, with the works on rue du Curé coming to an end and those on rue de la Boucherie expected to be completed in November 2019.

Local residents, shopkeepers and other users of rue du Curé have just a few weeks to wait before they can once again use the street free of works and detours in late July. Whilst work to replace the mains (dry networks, including electricity, telecommunications, public lighting and optical fibre, as well as water and gas lines) is now complete, the new surface is yet to be laid on the even-numbered side of the street. “The first section of the works, on rue du Curé, will be completed by the time the collective leave period begins,” works coordinator for the City of Luxembourg Serge Courte assures us.

The second section, on rue de la Boucherie, meanwhile, has already seen new wastewater and rainwater pipes, the Creos multitubular installation and water and gas pipes laid, with the dry networks set to be replaced in the summer. Once this phase has been completed, all that will remain is to lay the new natural stone surface before this second section is finally completed in November 2019. The final phase of the work, that is the area that also includes rue du Marché-aux-Herbes and Grand-Rue, is expected to be completed by late 2020.

Local residents, road users and any other interested parties are invited to visit the ­chantiers.vdl.lu website, where they will find all information relating to the works. Works coordinator Serge Courte
