A radar on the tracks for more safety at track crossings?

Would radars at track crossings be an idea to be able to avoid accidents like the one that recently happened in Bertrange? In Germany, there are already such devices in various places that warn the train when something is on the tracks. The DP MP Max Hahn has asked the responsible minister about this idea and also wanted to know how the CFL is progressing with the replacement of the railway barriers by subways.

„Rezent ass et zu Bartreng bei engem Passage à niveau zu engem Tëschefall komm, bei deem eng Automobilistin mat hirem Gefier op de Gleisen tëscht den zouene Barrièrë stoung, an den Auto du vum Zuch matgeholl gouf.

Am Ausland, z.B. an Däitschland, ginn et op verschiddene Plaze sougenannt „Gefahrenraum-Freimeldeanlagen“, déi mellen, wann en Objet op de Schinne steet a sou eng Kollisioun solle verhënneren.

An deem Kader wollt ech dem Här Minister fir Mobilitéit an ëffentlech Aarbechten folgend Froe stellen:

  • Zu wéi ville sou Accidenter wéi dee rezenten zu Bartreng ass et an de leschte fënnef Joer zu Lëtzebuerg komm?
  • Ginn et Plazen, wou sou Accidenter besonnesch dacks virkommen?
  • Ass den Här Minister der Meenung, dass et derwäert ass, och zu Lëtzebuerg déi uewe genannte Gleiseradaren op verschiddene Plazen z‘installéieren?
  • Wa jo, wou wier dat? Bis wéini kéint dës Mesure ëmgesat ginn?
  • Wéi vill Passages à niveau sinn an de leschte fënnef Joer wechgeholl ginn? Op wéi enge Plazen ass dat geschitt?
  • Wéi vill Passages à niveau sollen an den nächste Joren nach fortgeholl ginn? Op wéi enge Plaze soll dat geschéien? Bis wéini sollen déi eenzel Projeten ofgeschloss sinn?“

What is the current situation in Myanmar?

Following the military coup in February this year, the army continues to advance with increasing force against the protesters in Myanmar. A political crisis has turned into a human rights catastrophe. Even communications are now being monitored and intercepted on. In the French Senate and in the General Assembly, resolutions have called for recognition of the November election results and to end the violence that is currently taking place. What has happened so far, after the EU Member States have clearly stated their opposition to the coup in Myanmar? What help did the sanctions bring? And how is this going to continue? Our MP Gusty Graas inquired at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


Current political situation on Cyprus

Geopolitical tensions in Cyprus have recently taken a new dimension. Turkey plans to bring the inhabitants of Famagusta back under Turkish Cypriot administration by encouraging them to claim their land at the Property Commission, where their property will be contested.
As this occupation violates international agreements, including some EU decisions, our MP Gusty Graas has addressed some questions to the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
