Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, minister of public works, the environment and urban development, has just announced the €2 billion Larvotto land extension site will reopen. “This project is essential for the development of the Principality,” she said.

"The decision has been carefully considered, provided that there is a favorable outcome to the health crisis, to take advantage of the seaside this summer in a reduced capacity with the installation of small temporary snackbars, and to achieve the goal of completion by June 2021.”

Rigorous criteria will be the benchmark in the reopening of Larvotto, one of the country’s thirteen sites closed down on March 17 due to the coronavirus health epidemic.

The site and the 40 to 60 workers concerned will be subject to on-the-spot security checks daily, including taking temperatures of each worker upon entering the site and to ensure the use of compulsory gloves, masks and gel. Strict hygienic measures will also be reinforced regarding equipment and vehicles.
