Just noticed all the distances on the reassurance markers (pics 4, 6, 12...) are multiples of 5. I take it they round them off?

Well, therefore I cited

The sentence starts with "espère" and ends with "fixé". I am not really able to understand that. May be somebody French speaking can help.

Its also written:
Quote:
Ils attendent avec impatience le contournement de leur commune, annoncé pour fin 2016.
and
Quote:

N79: Bresnay – Chemilly 6.3km (? to fall 2015) [2nd c/w] – projectmap

Quote:
Les travaux de la section Bresnay - Chemilly

Un participant a demandé les raisons de la suspension des travaux sur ce tronçon et la date de reprise de ceux-ci.

La DREAL a précisé que l’arrêt du chantier intervenu l'été dernier était dû à des difficultés dans la mise en œuvre du marché public: les études réalisées par l'entreprise ne garantissaient pas la fiabilité technique de la future chaussée. Les travaux reprendront au printemps aprés la finalisation des études techniques pour une mise en service à l’automne 2015.

Google translates this to:

Quote:
The work of the section Bresnay - Chemilly

One participant questioned the reasons for the suspension of work on this section and the date of resumption of these.

The DREAL said the shutdown occurred yard last summer was due to difficulties in the implementation of public market studies conducted by the company does not guarantee the technical reliability of the future roadway. Work will resume in the spring after the completion of technical studies for commissioning in fall 2015.

A52 Aubagne - Aix-en-Provence

A new video, the entire length of A52 from Aubagne to Aix-en-Provence. The video starts at A50 near Cassis and ends at A8 near Aix.

A8 Nice - Ventimiglia

I had some footage of A8 left. The video starts at the western side of Nice and continues into Italy, to Ventimiglia.

The motorway crosses the border in a 400 m tunnel, however curiously each country shows only the length of the tunnel located on its territory, not the total length

Italian side: http://goo.gl/maps/dFSaI

French side: http://goo.gl/maps/2G4ZM

The missing link between A6 and A89 north of Lyon has been approved (DUP) and construction will commence soon. It is planned to open late 2017, and will be toll-free.

90 limit is temporary because of traffic or permanent? Italian side is mostly 110 and 130, only some short sections near Genova eastbound are 80.

Meanwhile in the Aragnouet-Bielsa tunnel signs show the total lenght of the tunnel, and not just the lenght in each country, along with other facts.
French side
Spanish side

Edit: I found Italian side has been changed and now shows the total lenght (both Italian and French parts, and not just Italian part). Pause at 1:41 in this Chris' video:

I was in France today . I like how the old, hyperdense national road system still lives in the departamental road numbering, thus allowing some easy navigation thru the secondary roads (Curse you, Mayenne!). I visited Pau and then Lourdes, we were planning to go on RD 938 and RD 937 (former RN 637 and a bypass to a section of it), but we messed up in the Pau area and ended taking RD 817 (RN 117) to RD 940 (RN 640) instead.

Navigating the current French RD numbering system feels like a post-apocalyptic dystopia -everything is leftovers of a good, sane system, and remains have been savaged by locals. I agree that the old RN network was a bit too dense, but now it's the other way round.

When you are into the center of Pau, you have to follow "Tarbes" or "Toulouse" (it's the same direction) signs to join D817. When you meed the "Rocade" you have to use her and follow "Lourdes - par Bétharram", and them you can join D938 to go to Lourdes. If you follow "Lourdes" (only) signs, you have to use RN 117 as you said.

Actually we took a wrong turn and we got lost in the Eastern suburbs, but somehow we managed to hit D817 by the Rocade and followed the Lourdes signs. Only after we turned onto D940 in Soumoulou I realized that road wasn't the one passing by the Betharram caves (which I visited a few years ago).

I drive there quite often: Nice - Ventimiglia has some sections with a 90 km/h speed limit and some with a 110 km/h speed limit. But sometimes they put 90 km/h all the way due to traffic. The main problem with this french motorway is that it is the key conection for long distance traffic between Spain-France-Italy but also serves as a beltway for the Cannes-Nice-Monaco metro area.

French government and toll-road operators sign motorway deal

The pact would notably see concession contracts extended for two years on average under a 3.2 billion euro ($3.43 billion) motorway upgrade package and no toll hike this year.

The toll freeze would not be made up for in 2016 but spread over the coming years, Macron told the French Public Works Federation in a speech.
http://in.reuters.com/article/2015/0...B00RXG20150409

Not bad. The tolls in France are getting too much of a burden. Some new toll roads charge over € 0.15 per kilometer, it used to be around € 0.08 - 0.10 per km.

The toll bill is becoming as high as the fuel bill, with a return trip from Paris to Bordeaux costing € 110 in tolls if you follow A10.
