Suppression of a railway tunnel in Rumelange: what is the environmental impact?

In Rumelange, the CFL wants to destroy a historic railway tunnel, i.e. remove the ground above the tunnel, to modernize the track. DP MPs Gusty Graas and Max Hahn asked what environmental impact these works had.

« Selon un article de presse récent, les CFL prévoiraient dans le cadre des travaux de suppression des passages à niveau PN106 et PN106a à Rumelange de supprimer également le tunnel sur la ligne Rumelange – Langengrund.

Vu que beaucoup d’arbres devraient être enlevés, la suppression de ce tunnel aura un impact considérable sur l’environnement.  

Dans ce contexte, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • Quelles sont les raisons pour supprimer le tunnel susmentionné ? Monsieur le Ministre peut-il fournir des précisions quant aux travaux prévus dans ce cadre ?
  • Quel serait l’impact environnemental de ces travaux ? Quelles mesures compensatoires devraient être effectuées ? »

DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.

Has the Minister of Health possibly already been contacted by the municipality of Bettendorf and could other municipalities get a new pharmacy?


Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier.
DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.
