The Luxembourg Roads Authority will be dismantling street lighting on sections of the A1 and A13 motorways this week and next, leading to a number of road closures.
From Tuesday 20 to Saturday 31 August 2019, these works will be carried out between the Howald tunnel and the Schaffner interchange on the A1 and between the Aessen and Ehlerange tunnels on the A13.
More specifically, from 10:00 on Tuesday 20 August until 16:00 on Thursday 22 August 2019, the A13 will be closed to traffic between the Aessen and Ehlerange tunnels in both directions. On Saturdays 24 and 31 August 2019, only one lane will be open to traffic between the Howald tunnel and the Schaffner interchange in both directions.
The maximum speed limit will be reduced to 70 km/h for the duration of these works.
This dismantling work aims to repair street light poles, as well as due to the discontinuation of some spare parts and the need for difficult maintenance work. In addition, the works should reduce light pollution and save energy.
It should be noted that the interchange zones and the tunnel entries will remain illuminated.
