Even if the decision to appease the traffic at the Bertrange center had been taken a long time ago, the adoption of the principle of shared space to achieve this goal was only realized after a visit to Drachten (Netherlands) in 2008, initiated by The Road Safety of Luxembourg. The college of bourgmestre and aldermen of Bertrange, then in office, convinced of this idea, immediately made contact with the ministries responsible as well as with the Administration of the Bridges and Roads. In 2009, the principle of shared space was introduced under the name of "meeting area" in the Highway Code in Luxembourg.
In parallel, the first studies were launched and presented to the public in June 2009 during an information session. This was followed by Workshops open to the citizens and concerned at the end of 2009 / beginning of 2010 in order to define the main lines of the project. The integration of all the needs of people with reduced mobility was a key element; A guiding concept was developed with the association ADAPTH.
The "shared space" dossier was concretized and finalized by a monitoring committee composed of representatives of the local police, ADAPTH, road safety, delegates from the parents' association, Pupils, teachers and communal staff, as well as men of art and citizens of Bertrange.
The various phases of the project involve the relocation and reorganization of the parking area, which formed the basis for the creation of a park in the center of the project and the renaturation of the "Pétrusse" stream. After receiving the green light from the ministry responsible in 2012 to finally integrate the streets of the center of Bertrange into the communal heritage that was formerly part of the state network, the site was able to be launched with important works Underground infrastructure. The works were completed by mid-2015.
