Junglinster bypass road to open in September
(CS/asc) Construction work on a bypass around Junglinster is set to be completed by September this year, to divert traffic around the town between Graulinster and Gonderange.
Construction on the project started in 2009 and carried out in four phases. A roundabout near the new “Lënster Lycée” and the “Laangwiss” industrial zone was finished first. A 900 metre tunnel and an access road to the lycée underneath the N11 followed.
Arguably the most impressive part of the project was phase three - the construction of a 444 metre long bridge. Concrete works were completed last week, with guard rails currently being installed to prevent cars from falling off the bridge in case of accidents. Additional concrete barriers will also be set up.
The bridge will be surfaced in July, with final works to be carried out after the summer holiday.
For the final piece of the puzzle, works are already underway on road verges between the bridge and the “Lënster Bierg”. The installation of signs and lights is being prepared.
By July, the N11 roundabout will be completed, with a P&R car park with 250 spaces to be built.
The 3.86 kilometre stretch of road around Junglinster is expected to open on September 18 this year.
