As some of you will be all to aware the Luxembourg Tram project is set to launch on Sunday 10 December. The image below shows the detail of where the various public transport methods will run from that day. Monday 11 December is more than likely going to be quite a challenge for drivers of private vehicles as they discover how the changes will affect them.

You will see on the image below that there will be a new bus station opposite D’Coque on rue Léon Hengen and it is likely to be busy at the same time as the Primary School opens to accept students for the day. This means that Rue Léon Hengen will be extremely busy with public buses as well as private vehicles.

With this in mind, I encourage all of those who take their children to school by private vehicle to park in the 2 car parks on Boulevard Konrad Adenauer and shown on the featured picture. We also advise that you give yourself extra time to drop off your children, remain calm and to observe the traffic regulations.

Your parents’ association had no prior information relating to the changes shown, particularly the new bus station on Rue Léon Hengen, and we will be seeking a meeting with the appropriate authorities to express our deep concern for child safety as a result of the changes made and to seek assurances from them that our concerns will be addressed.
