yeah, and I am from yesterday. AFAIK Chris allows regional threads, and IDF has so many motorways that it deserves a special thread.

Nice photos.

On every photo you see trees, something you would never see on similar pix, from a trip trough a big North American city.

Although I don't really agree with regional threads on H&A I have to congratulate hofburg for this beautiful pictures. I should search my archive for some pictures of Paris motorways made in 2008.

thanks! heh I didn't even notice that there are trees everywhere, apparently I am used to that. there is a place on peripherique, where even a lake (!) is right above the motorway.



http://maps.google.fr/maps?f=d&sourc...7&ie=UTF8&z=15

I guess that something to do with that France is mainly rural, so they want to bring la campagne even to the capital.

you did a roadtrip to Paris?

Regarding the question of regional threads, there's no problem if Chris decide to merge this thread with the rest of French motorways. I just thought if maybe later I will add some more photos, it would be nice if they were all together.

No, I went by plane (BUD-CDG), but I traveled by car on some motorways around Paris.

A newly reconstructed-then-under construction section of motorway in the middle of a junction is hardly a fair comparison to all those photos

Find the tree:

You are aware, aren't you, that this country is just slightly larger than Denmark, and that it has quite a few major cities (some of them larger than Denmark....)?
