Work will take place during the Easter holidays, from 11 April to 21 April 2023, on Quai Gustave-Ador, between Place des Marronniers and Place de Traînant (alongside Eaux-Vives beach). This is the final section of the quay within the limits of the City of Geneva which has not yet been given a sound-absorbent surface.
Work 24 hours a day
The work will last for both weeks of the Easter school holidays. It will initially take place from Tuesday 11 April to Thursday 13 April, with the Friday 14 April earmarked as a reserve day.
After stopping for the weekend, work will resume on Monday 17 April and continue until Wednesday 19 April, with Thursday 20 April and Friday 21 April scheduled as reserve days.
On the dates announced, work will continue 24 hours a day, with several teams operating in shifts on the work site during the scheduled days and nights.
Traffic and public transport will be maintained during the work periods, albeit with a single lane open in both directions. In the event of heavy traffic, detours will be implemented to relieve this sector of the city.
The Rampe de Cologny will be closed in the downwards direction (no through road access for local residents to Chemin de Bellefontaine only). The road will remain open in the upwards direction, but will only be accessible from the city centre. The left-hand turn here when travelling from Vésenaz will be temporarily closed during the work.
Motorists are strongly advised to avoid this sector and to use other routes on the dates indicated (see the map of advised routes available for download).
Reducing road noise
The work involves installing an entirely new sound absorbent surface, as the old one is severely damaged here.
Following the work carried out between 2018 and 2020 on the section between Baby-Plage and the Jardin Anglais, the entire length of Quai Gustave-Ador will henceforth be fitted with this surface. While the residential buildings along this section are a good distance from the road, the reduction in road noise will nevertheless be appreciated along this very popular promenade.
The City of Geneva would like to thank the residents and general public in advance for their patience while this work is being carried out. In the event of unfavourable weather conditions, the work will be postponed until a subsequent date.
