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?“

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.

What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.
