Does France offer tourist plates (like what Germany does)?

Say for example, I want to pick up the Peugeot 508 that I ordered from the Peugeot factory (in Rennes) and drive it around France......before having my car shipped to the Philippines........

Think of it like how BMW offers European Delivery service.......only this time, it's a Peugeot.....and in France

Is it possible?

Thanks . Do you have any information about beginning and completion of the A89 section?

Does the list already contain all ongoing projects?

So this gap on A89 will remain?

https://maps.google.pt/maps?saddr=A8...sz=13&t=m&z=15

And the one near Bordeaux?

Was the Toulon tunnel planned to be built in phases (one direction per phase) from the beginning, or was it planned to be 1+1 in the first phase, but opened as a one-way tunnel because of some new tunnel safety rules?

The one-way roads around the railway station are also curious:

Not a motorway, but a part of French road history: 2 stretches of former Nationale 7, once France's longest road at 1.004 kilometers, through sunny Provence.





If you want to spare A8/A7 toll and like tree-lined roads through picturesque landscapes, this is definitely worth a drive

The tunnel is thus well-named

N1 Réunion

http://www.thelocal.fr/20140409/fran...r-12km-of-road

France's most expensive road - €1.6b for just 12km

This project was discussed before in this thread. The current expressway is vulnerable (apparently 40 long duration road closures per year) and the detour route turns a 10 minute drive into a 50 minute drive. The only nearby detour is D41, an extremely twisty road where the longest straight section is only 250 meters long, and features dozens of hairpin turns.

The only other alternative route, which may be better suitable for trucks, is a 150 kilometer detour via N3. That turns a 15 km trip into a 150 km trip, so it's not hard to understand the importance of the N1 along the north coast of Réunion.

It seems that this is the first interchange in French Guyana.

Avignon must be the city with most grade-separated interchanges located closest to a medieval wall:



A video of this peculiar area, featuring the funky N580 interchange:

Driving former Route Nationale 9 between the Spanish border and Narbonne.

Part 1, the border - Perpignan:



Part 2. This part features the (sort of) bypass of the city, which consists on several through roads bodged up to to form a partial ringroad. There's a planned "rocade" that will bypass this mess, but so far only a tiny (2-kilometer long) part has been built.



Part 3: Perpignan - Narbonne. This is a nice drive compared to the busy, expensive A9 motorway. However, expect to cover the trip in double the time than on the motorway. They have been adding some roundabouts and banning overtaking in some stretches lately, as if they were subtly urging you to pay A9

A75 Pézenas

The upgrade of A75 around Pézenas will be completed on 1 July. It already was a four-lane divided controlled-access expressway, but will attain motorway status on 1 July after a € 23 million upgrade.
