Minister for Mobility and Public Works Francois Bausch provided an outline on works surrounding the Hosingen bypass in the Oesling area in a response to a parliamentary question.
Responding to CSV MP Martine Hansen, he confirmed that a detailed pre-project would be presented at the beginning of 2020 ahead of submitting a funding draft bill to the Chamber of Deputies.
Currently, geological and archaeological studies are still underway and the authorities must await the completion of these surveys before commencing work. However, the authorities have already purchased 80% of the land required for the bypass, also swapping the land in some instances. Once the vote on the funding draft bill has gone through the Chamber of Deputies, he added, the ministry can begin requesting authorisations and complete the submission dossier.
In total, the implementation of the Hosingen bypass will take three years, and is split into three lots. The third lot, for instance, will see the current N7 be dismantled ahead of construction. The village of Hosingen will also be subject to a 30 km/h speed limit alongside the creation of cycling paths.
