D76, Combe Laval

A very scenic road is route départementale D76 in the Drôme department. It runs through the Combe Laval, a canyon. It is somewhat off-the-beaten-path, there were not a lot of tourists and the road is not used by a high volume of traffic. There are two scenic overlooks where you can park your car, at either end of the tunnel / gorge section.

As the plaque reads, the road was built by the water and forest administration between 1893 and 1896 and widened by the departmental government between 1938 and 1939.

Cirque d'Archiane

I made a little video of a scenic route into a canyon known as 'Cirque d'Archiane' east of Die. It's a dead-end road with very little traffic.

I recognized some words and after a translation I'm aware about the reason for traffic being the tragic events in Paris. How come this effects the traffic so much? My guess is that some people avoid mass transit, but could that lead to a recordbreaking jam?

The Paris road network is prone to epic jams anyway and I think the section of A3 Autoroute De L'est from west of Eurodisney to its western terminus near where the tragic events happened was already the busiest motorway in Europe anyway with well north of 200k AADT.

Sadly, and separately from tragic events, there are no plans to improve the major network in the near future, EG finish the N104 orbital.

A86, Paris

I made a video of the north/western part of A86 through the inner suburbs of Paris. It runs from the Duplex A86 tunnel to A1, through Nanterre, Colombes, Gennevilliers and Saint-Denis.

There is no direct A1-A86 interchange at Stade de France. An alternate link motorway was built through La Courneuve.

Sure, the situation is so bad that if you throw a few hundred cars, the jam counts a few hundred km more

As I thought. Was it the same after the attack on Charlie Hebdo? It must be a terrifying ordeal for the citizens of the city, even if that particular event was partially aimed towards media.

D177 Axe Rennes - Redon

The Lohéac bypass (3 km) opened to traffic on 20 November. It is a 2x2 voie express.

D531 Gorges de la Bourne

The Gorges de la Bourne is a deep canyon located on the Isère-Drôme departmental border. Departmental road 531 (until 1972: RN 531) runs through it. It's quite spectacular, but relatively unkown, it was not crowded with tourists.

Completing the N104 orbital should be a no-brainer, but I guess funds will be scarce with the massive cost of building the Metro du Grand Paris. I'm sure Line 15 alone will cost many times the cost of completing the N104.

Still metro renovation is more needed. N104 is I guess in plans too. But better build the underground

N7, Valence

Some photos of N7 around the city of Valence. The N7 forms the eastern ring road, but the N532-N7 link is built for through traffic, traffic staying on N7 has to turn off.

A75 La Méridienne

I filmed all 330 kilometers of A75 from Clermont-Ferrand to Béziers.

Here are the first three parts, from Clermont-Ferrand down to Marvejols.

Part I: Clermont-Ferrand - Massiac (km 0 - km 70).


Part II: Massiac - St. Flour (km 70 - km 105)


Part III: St. Flour - Marvejols (km 105 - km 160)

Is there any update info about the latter? According to GM and OSM, it seems that both carriageways are in service!?

A75 La Méridienne

The last two videos of Autoroute 75 in southern France.





A75 is definitely the most entertaining way to the south. You can see how light the traffic is when I filmed this in early June (it was on a Sunday, which explains the lack of truck traffic).
