Then you drive 400 meters on the off ramp and give your ticket to the attendant and pay € 2.50.
Col de la Bonette is amazing.

As for landscape, in my humble opinion, the route through Col d'Iseran is the most impressive on French Alp passes > 2000m. Col du Monte Cenis is also interesting.

Col d'Izoard is much nicer, in my opinion. I just put some pics of it in the alpine pass roads thread.

None. The original plan was to extend it all the way to Calabria and connect to A3 near Sibari. This connection is currently supplied by SS106, (almost) all expressway standard.

Renzi is thinking to build the bridge to avoid paying penalties.

A3 is better than some old highways like A10.

Why ?Many people are saying that A10 is a bad highway.Well the only problem with A10 is that it doesn't have hard shoulders on some parts.

They were similar: no hard shoulder, reduced width lanes, reduced curvature radii, some steep sections. A10 is harder to fix because of the numerous tunnels.

A10 has several substandard sectors, but contrary to A3, it is much more expensive to fix due to terrain constraints and, contrary to A3, you couldn't shut half of its lanes off alternating sectors for 10 years to reconstruct it.

A10 looks better, however, because it has been a concession since 1997, while A3 is managed by ANAS, which has lower standards and takes much longer to fix things like fading paint, landscaping, repaving of mildly damaged sections. Also, the concessionaire starts works with a clear path to finish them, ANAS has had a lot of trouble managing some contracts, leaving worksites stopped for up to 19 months with no progress at all (and traffic in 1+1 lane only!) etc.

From a geometrical point of view, A10 before concession was comparable to A3 pre-modernization.

I've checked the project page (June version). If I got it right, the first section should be completed/opened in January 2015 and the 2nd section in July 2016. Can anyone confirm?
