Yes everything is running normally - that is to say, as badly as usual.

Is the Monaco rail tunnel open yet?  (I hope to pass through it this weekend.)

Pity the traders of Ventimiglia. Thanks for the info - looks like the TAM 100 bus will continue to be our main transport

Opposite the appartment block I live in, in Monaco, they are building a block of appartments for the civil service in Monaco.

Due to the building work they are doing, the tunnel has been closed because the foundations for the building, as it is being built on a cliff face, have to go down so deep that the work could endanger those on the trains. I dont think the foundation work will be finished for another 2 months.

I know the MC station say they are doing track maintenance, but this is the real reason. The civil service workers in Monaco have to go somewhere and the block they are building is so vital that the tunnel has been closed. The work also went right through the summer and goes from 7am till 10.30pm hence normal Monagasque bulding rules dont apply.

Hope this helps
