There is a project at Porte de Vincennes but they will not covert the freeways like in Porte des Lilas or Porte de Vanves.



1: Office buildings
2: Student housings and cultural center
3: Retail buildings
4: Gymnasium
5: Hotel

Well, there is still some free space close to Porte de Clichy (the old railway yards on the lines heading to St-Lazare), near to the BP, but strictly not related to the expressway.

We can also replace small old buildings, built above train tracks...
Note that the area between the Périphérique and the Maréchaux boulevards is under-built.

Well, well, under built... it is the only real decompresion space the city had together with the river and the tiny green areas... for the rest of the world, the space between the Maréchaux boulevards and the BP is urbanised... even if for Paris standards is pure underbuilt suburb...

It is urbanized but it is badly urbanized.

I received a speeding ticket from France. I drove 111 in a 110 zone on A8 near Les Adrets-de-l'Estérel. € 45. I got the fine at home 15 days after being caught.

Which is the accuracy of automatic speed controls in France?

Depends on their equipment. At speeds over 100 km/h, it is 10% with portable speed cameras, and 5% with fixed speed cameras. At speeds below 100 km/h, it is 10 and 5 km/h respectively.

So, how you can be fined when driving at 111 in a 110 km/h area?

Ah, OK. I misunderstood your first message.

I am sorry... :/

So, which are the countries who have international agreements for sharing fines information among them? Obviously France and the Netherlands got one.

My acquaintance received a fine 7 weeks after being caught speeding just shy of 40 kilometers outside the city of residence .

You can add Belgium to the list. I received also a 45€ fine (written in Dutch) for 131 km/h on the A10 (130 limit). Measured speed was 138 km/h.
It seems everyone who was caught speeding in France lately received a ticket for 1km/h excess.
Is this some kind of bad joke or is their equipment that unreliable...?

Once they can charge fines across EU, I hope they substitute plate-recognition tolls for toll plazas. Same system can be used to collect tolls.

Not until they unite the banking system in Europe and depth-collection agencies that has juristiction Europe-wide. There are also still countries about who do not participate in registation exchange in Europe.

Small wonder people keep putting tyres on the cameras and setting them on fire. Vive la France!

it's definitely not because of radars french are used to them, they only speed once they are out of the hexagone.

A51 Aix-en-Provence - Marseille

Some photos of the southernmost leg of A51, from Aix-en-Provence to Marseille. This part features some antique signage. These exits are not announced beforehand, it's just one sign at the exit.
