This section describes the procedure for companies carrying out works within the luxembourgish motorway network.

- On traffic lanes requiring access from the road as well as a closure of the BAU (hard shoulder), of the VL (slow lane) and/or of the (fast lane). ( Illustration )

Applications for road works
For all interaction realized on highways and their enclosures, including junctions, access roads and exits, the companies have to submit roadwork requests (Form “Coordination of the work sites on motorways” ) (fax, e-mail) to the CCT-CITA:
FAX: 31 34 16
The application for road works must be submitted regardless of whether the roadworks were organized by a mutual agreement with a technician of the Road Administration.
The rules to which each member adheres to are listed in a document with all the terms and conditions stipulated, which is an integral part of the application process for road works.
For a highway closure (one-way) the duly completed application has to be introduced by the company to the CCT-CITA at least 4 months prior to the date at which they would like to start the work.
For a lane closure, the duly completed application has to be introduced by the company to the CCT-CITA at least 2 months prior to the date which they would like to start the works. The same goes for all kind of works that need to be done within the enclosure of the motorway network.
Work areas and time schedules
Moving toward the city of Luxembourg and on the ring road around the city, works are principally not authorised before 9.00 am respectively 10.00 am.
In the direction of the border crossings the work sites must be cleared before 4 pm. The time schedule must be strictly observed.
The final approval decision rests with the head of the CCT-CITA.

Comprehensive security and health plan
Every company operating on the luxembourgish motorway network has to comply with the legislation in place.
For the entire motorway network a comprehensive security and health plan ( PGSS ) was developed and the companies, as well as their subcontractors, have to comply with it. For the work sites on which several companies are present, the firms must establish a particular security and health plan ( PPSS ) and have to hand it over in advance to the security and health-care coordinator.
Foreign companies – Social swipe card
On construction sites in the Grand Duchy, all agents and workers of foreign companies must possess an e-assignement of employees „badge social“ (social swipe card).
This social swipe card may be obtained from the mine and work inspection (ITM) at https://guichet.itm.lu/edetach/
