is there some particular reason why that part was never called A54? It has all motorway standards afaik.

A54 Arles - Salon

Part three of A54-N113 from Nîmes to Salon (A9 to A7). The eastern leg of A54 from St-Martin-de-Crau to A7 at Salon-de-Provence.

A75, Viaduc de Millau

The Viaduc de Millau was inaugurated exactly 10 years ago today. (actual traffic opening was 16 December 2004).

I wonder how much Millau (town) has changed after it lost through traffic.

I also wonder how many cm have the pillars subsided ever since.

Not so long time i watched a documentary movie about that bridge and i think that Millau had frequent traffic jams,so that means that Millau lost lot of traffic.

I used to sit in traffic at Millau all the time before that bridge was opened. It's not just going through the town, but also crossing that valley through mountain roads that created long tailbacks. Now of course it's all over, and because of the free flow there is very little traffic crossing that bridge.

A8 Aix-en-Provence

Some photos of A8 in the Aix-en-Provence region. I photographed the entire length of A8 to the Italian border in September, but it's a bit too much to edit and post in one time.

1. The nicely situated A7-A8 interchange.

A8-1 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

2. Nice is still 190 kilometers away

A8-4 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

3. The TGV viaduct west of Aix.

A8-5 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

4. The A8/A51 interchange is incomplete, you cannot access A51 in either direction from the west, so you'll have to go through Aix.

A8-6 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

5. Exit 30a and 30b end at the same roundabout. It's kind of like a Canadian parclo.

A8-8 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

6.

A8-9 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

7. The Dutch are everywhere.

A8-11 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

8. The last exit before the tolls. The Montagne Sainte-Victoire in the background, which is very famous through paintings by Cézanne in the 1800s.

A8-13 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

9. Trets.

A8-17 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

10. The toll plaza is located just before the A52 interchange.

A8-20 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

11. The A52 interchange.

A8-23 by Chriszwolle, on Flickr

Too bad you didn't photograph this viaduct -it's undoubtedly the best sight along A8 in Aix. There's a cool tunnel, too.

A8 Fréjus - Cannes

A video of A8 through the Esterel Mountains, between Fréjus and Cannes. This is where I got my € 45 speeding ticket for driving 111 in a 110 zone.

Last week went to Baiona (Bayonne) from San Sebastian and I drove on A-63. I know works are to improve motorway to three lanes per direction but with the traffic and with thousand of trucks I felt some fear. Lanes are very narrow, I passed the car on some centimeters of distance of the trucks. And now in winter at 6 o'clock is dark.

I read in signals that works will last until 2017. (Widening of third lane from Handaye -spanish frontier- to Bayonne)

ecotaxe

The late canceling of the 'ecotaxe' toll on trucks by the Hollande government will cost the taxpayer € 800 million in compensation to operator Écomouv'. The French government will pay € 403 million in direct compensation and € 40 million annually over the next 10 years.

They could have build 100 kilometers of new expressway for that kind of money.

Looks like Écomouv' is the only winner here. I wonder who they are, but it's easy to guess.

French truck drivers protested a lot against that tax. Basically, to save their interest they made other French waste money. Not really nice...
