On Saturday, January 12, 2019, the police and the rescue services will participate in a national anti-terrorist exercise on the site Belval and more specifically in and around the Rockhal and Esch / Belval and at the Emile Mayrisch Hospital Center (CHEM).
As this is a major exercise with more than 1.200 participants, noises (shots, explosions, screams ...) could be heard outside the exercise site. The organisers wish to emphasise that no danger exists for the public at any time. The exercise will only take place in and around the Rockhal area, which will be fenced and secured. Other places in Belval will not be affected by the exercise.
In order to ensure the smooth running of the exercise, some roads on the site will remain closed to traffic on the day of the exercise between 07.00 and 20.00 hours:
- Avenue du Rock'n Roll (open to residents for the section between the Porte de France and the Rockhal square and closed to all traffic at the Rockhal);
- Avenue des Hauts-Fourneaux;
- Avenue des Sidérurgistes;
- Avenue de la Fonte.
