In fact that motorway has only one number: E11 . Except the Orleans-Vierzon part which is E09.

Time for the last photos of E44 Chris, we are on a new page, the 100th!

I remember travelling the A29 when I got the ferry from Rosslare. But from Ireland, it's more practical and cheaper to board the plane and rent a car due to the long journey time. Thanks for uploading those pics.

686km of traffic jam today at 11:30.

In French: http://www.letelegramme.com/ig/gener...12-1794685.php

Interesting fact: 55km of traffic jam on the relatively calm A75. Also, Lyon is fully stuck, with 16km of jam at its southern exits.

I noticed there is frequent weekend congestion on southbound A71 between Orléans and Vierzon, the delays can be significant here. I think it has to do with the small toll plaza when leaving A71 for A20 towards Toulouse. The waiting line causes A71 traffic to slow down as well.

Waiting for péage in these conditions must be hell. One week ago, I was in a medium-sized traffic jam at a péage near Cambrai, although the motorway itself was not extremely busy actually. Some people were already being quite agressive.

The motorway just before (chalk cliffs), on and right beyond the pont de Normandie is one of the nicest roads in France. The bridge is spectacular and the views over the Seine bay, Le Havre and its port and Honfleur are amazing.

A13 Beuzeville - Caen

A few photos of the Autoroute A13 in Normandie, from Beuzeville (A29) to the périphérique of Caen. This is a toll road with an open system, there's only a toll booth at the Beuzeville interchange and further west near Caen. Total tolls were about € 4,50.

Bon !

I spent a summer studying in Caen. Nice city, nice countryside, a lot of those place names are familiar.

I'm surprised to see Nantes as a control city up there - why not Rennes? (I assume they want people to use the A84 and then the N-I-forget/E3)

The A813 is new to me.

EDIT: The A813 is new, period, I see. 2011 Michelin road atlas shows something autoroute-like under construction at the right place (no route number), 2011 IGN atlas has nothing. Is it supposed to extend farther than the ex-N13?

Yeah that's a bit of a discrepancy. From Caen you will only see Rennes on A84. Nantes doesn't reappear until you hit the Rennes beltway.

N137. But for me it is E03 as you said.

An example of highway conversion:
Angers, a town in western France where several highways meet, including the A11 (Paris-Nantes), is literally split into two by a highway crossing its centre, right on the Maine river banks. The ''voies sur berges'', as they are called, were built during the 70's-80's, occasioning many old building destruction, and still cause a lot of noise and pollution. After the construction of two bypasses (one is already finished), the ''voies sur berges'' will become less useful and the municipality is thinking about their transformation.

The quay at the beginning of the 20th century:


Actual situation:
image hosted on flickr


In 2012, the final project (three were retained) was announced, it schedules a total destruction of the actual roads and a new layout, with levels of grass and trees connecting the city centre with the river. However, the amount of work to achieve is huge, and the project won't be completed before 2030.

You can see the winning project and pictures of the actual situation here: http://www.phytolab.fr/?p=2412

I wonder was there any revolt against this highway since it require destruction of existing buildings and causes pollution and if there were any protests how big was it?

Is that the common way to refer to this route in the region? If so, it must be one of the few routes in France known by its E-number.

I don't think anybody cares about E-numbers in France. Just like in Germany, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Ireland, etc.

As long as I know, some protests occurred, but there was no choice: the highway had to be build, and bypasses were really hard to construct at that time, because of several large rivers and swamps spreading around the town. When the first bypass was built in 2007-2008, it required the construction of a long tunnel and many bridges.

Also, at that time, considerations about pollution were not that high, especially about car traffic, increasing each year and congesting the existing old boulevards. And to finish, the old buildings on the quays were not really old, because the quays were not built before 1850. Every city in France had at least an old street or square destroyed by the 60's or 70's, if not a whole quarter.
