Some of you had asked me about it for a long time, well here it is. They have finally set up the EU sign "France" at the Franco-Brazilian border.

The sign was set up just at the exit of the bridge over the Oyapock River, at the entrance on French territory. The picture was taken by 2 adventure-seeking girls from Marseille last February. To the left you can see the pointed white roofs of the border checkpoint.



On this aerial view from January 2011, I have indicated with a small red square the exact location of the "France" sign. You can see the pointed white roofs of the border checkpoint to the left.

N154 Chartres - Orléans

A new 4-lane expressway will open to traffic next week southeast of Chartres. It bypasses two villages along the N154 Route Nationale.

An elaborate parking structure on the Bordeaux riverfront. Interestingly it doesn't look like a parking garage at all from street level.

A map of the motorways and expressways (grey lines) of Metropolitan France as of April 2013. The expressways are just like motorways, except they don't bear the name "autoroute".

This is an expressway (grey line on the map):

Unfortunately it's impossible to find an exact figure for the number of kilometers of motorways and expressways in France.

I don't understand one thing, why are there no reflectory sticks on the side? When I drove on French motorways last year at night it was dark as hell. Markings didn't seem to reflect either. Some people seem to use the highbeam lights too...

N141 Angoulême - Limoges

An 11 kilometer segment of 2x2 voie expresse opened to traffic around Chabanais and Étagnac in the Charente département. This leaves just 20 kilometers of two-lane road between Angoulême and Limoges.

Excellent news.
This road towards Limoges was like in the Middle Ages !
But all is not finished. The last 20 km with some villages and dangerous cross-roads will be finish in... some centuries !

A9 Perpignan

A 17 kilometer stretch of A9 was widened to 2x3 lanes between 2010 and 2013. All six lanes were open to traffic from June 28. It runs from Rivesaltes to Perpignan-Sud, which means the 2x3 segment is now 228 kilometers long.

Hello my friends. I just wanted to ask a question. Is the nothern section of A63 between Saint-Geours-De-Maremne and Bordeaux tolled now? I've heard that it was introduced in May or a little while ago.

yes, it's tolled since a few weeks, in april.

http://www.a63-atlandes.fr/

It costs 1.80 € at each toll-gate for a car.

At the end of the roadworks, end of the year, prices will increase.
See the link:
http://www.a63-atlandes.fr/contenu/f...e-a-peage.html

Sometimes ,when I have time, I don't use the part of the motorway where there are the tollgates.
I use the small road parallel of the motorway.
see google map. But there are no indications to avoid both parts with toll.
If you know, it's easier.
