WikiProject Luxembourg/Highway code unclarities
This page is meant to collect unclarities (and bugs) in the Luxembourgish high way code. We can list both general unclarities, and unclear signage at a particular location. At some point, we can offer these to the respective governments, in the hope that it might clear things up (and perhaps improve their attitude towards Openstreetmap).
Before reporting things to the government, it would be good if all unclarities could be confirmed by at least one other person. Please change Unconfirmed into Confirmed if you can confirm the unclarity.
- Maxspeed Val de Ham (Unconfirmed):
Coming from either Rue des Peupliers or the Cents-Hamm train station and turning onto the N2 (Val de Ham), there is no speed restriction sign, indicating that the maximum speed remains 50 on Val de Ham. However, the maximum speed on the Val de Ham at that point is in fact 70. The first 70-sign you pass coming from Rue des Peupliers or the station is only placed several hundred meters further.
- Access restrictions at Rue Nicolas Adames (Unconfirmed):
Coming from Boulevard de La Foire, you pass a C,2 sign, which indicates that non-destination cycling traffic is not allowed. However, coming from the park (by bicycle), you don't pass any sign indicating that cycling is not allowed.
- Cycling at Rue Nicolas Adames (Unconfirmed):
Coming from Boulevard de La Foire, you pass a C,2 sign, which indicates that non-destination cycling traffic is not allowed in Rue Nicolas Adames. However, coming from the park (by bicycle) along the western or eastern cycling path to Rue Nicolas Adames, you don't pass any sign indicating that cycling is not allowed on Rue Nicolas Adames. Moreover, coming from Rue Nicolas Adames to the park along the western path, there is no sign that cars / motorbikes are not allowed into the park.
- Rue Pierre d'Aspelt (Unconfirmed):
Coming from Boulevard Joseph II direction park, you pass a C,2 sign, which indicates that non-destination cycling traffic is not allowed (to doublecheck). However, coming from the park (by bicycle), you don't pass any sign indicating that cycling is not allowed.
- Allée Marconi (Unconfirmed):
When you enter the park through Allée Marconi, the park on the left is closed with a sign C,2 except bicycles, but the park on the right is not. The bollards are (at least sometimes) open, so this allows everyone to drive in the park.
- Side road of Rue Mohrfels (Fixed by Ville de Luxembourg):
There is a small road that starts at the intersection of Rue Laurent Menager, Rue Sosthene Weis and Montee de Pfaffenthal, and from there goes down to Rue Mohrfels. It is unclear what the status is of this road [EDIT: VdL added a C,2 sign here]. There is no sign, so it seems to be access=yes. However, that would mean that the access=destination zone (indicated by C,2 signs) in Pfaffenthal (for example Rue Mohrfels) is leaky.
- Maxspeed Boulevard Napoleon 1er (Unconfirmed)
When driving through Rue Michel Engels coming from Val Fleuri, one passes a sign 'end of zone 30' before entering the living_street. When turning right at the end of the living_street into Boulevard Napoleon 1er, there is no new sign 'begin of zone 30'.
- Cycling in city center (Unconfirmed)
On Place Guillaume II, bicycles are always allowed. In the shopping streets, they are not allowed during shopping hours. However, there is no sign that prevents bicycles from getting in the shopping streets coming from Place Guillaume II (through the tunnel).
- Cycling in Avenue Amelie (Unconfirmed)
When cycling from Boulevard Royal to Avenue Amelie (southern part), there is a sign C,2, indicating that cycling is not permitted. However, coming from the other side, there is no such sign (only bollards).
- Cycling at Place du Theatre (Unconfirmed)
When cycling out of Rue Beaumont to Place du Theatre, there is no sign that cycling straight into Place du Theatre (instead of right) violates the oneway restriction.
- Cycling in Grand Rue (Unconfirmed)
At all entrances to the pedestrian zone, an exception is made for cyclists outside of shopping hours, except at the crossing Grand Rue/Rue Aldringen.
- Cycling and horse riding in Bambësch (Unconfirmed)
According to the C,2 signs, access to most tracks in Bambësch is not allowed from N 12 and CR 215 to all vehicles (including bicycles) and horse riders, but access is permitted when reached from other ways?
- Zone 30 at Rue des Maraîchers (Unconfirmed)
There is a missing 'end zone 30' sign at the crossing with Rue Paul Noesen
- Zone 30 in Limpertsberg (Unconfirmed)
There is a missing sign 'zone 30' on Avenue Pasteur for vehicles (destination traffic only) coming from direction Rollingergrund.
- Access for hgv in Beggen (Unconfirmed)
The access restrictions for heavy goods vehicles in Beggen are not clear. This involves Rue de la Cimetiere, Rue Cyprien Merjal, Rue Henri Dumant, etc. These streets have hgv=destination only on one end of the road, and no sign on the other.
