Asphalting with loose chippings: are there no alternatives?

DP Member of Parliament André Bauler has heard that a considerable amount of vehicles in the vicinity of Koetschette have been damaged after the renewal of a road. He therefore asked the minister in charge whether there were no alternatives to loose chippings on the occasion of a road renewal by the P&Ch in order to prevent any resulting damage.

« Il me revient que suite aux travaux de route sur le CR308 entre Koetschette et Grevels, qui a été goudronné à l’aide de gravillon (« Rollsplitt »), de nombreux dégâts auraient été constatés par les riverains, tels que des fenêtres de voitures et de tracteurs cassées ainsi que des bosses dans bon nombre de véhicules.

Dans ce cadre j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • L’Administration des ponts et chaussées a-t-elle reçu des réclamations à cet égard ? Dans l’affirmative, combien de réclamations ont été recensées ?
  • Pour quelles raisons le goudronnage à l’aide de gravillon est-il toujours employé ? N’existe-t-il pas d’alternative à cette technique ?
  • Le gravillon est-il utilisé pour tous les chantiers de ce genre ? Quels sont les paramètres déterminant l’usage de gravillon lors de travaux de route ? »

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.


A “repair bonus” to boost the circular economy?

With a bonus, the Ministry of the Environment in Thuringia wants to encourage people to have their electrical appliances repaired instead of throwing them away. DP MP Max Hahn therefore asked if this would not be a way to strengthen the circular economy also here in Luxembourg.
