N79 Montmarault - Moulins

Some photos of N79, a major east-west route part of the RCEA - Route Centre-Europe Atlantique.

The RCEA concept:


The plan is to upgrade all RCEA routes to a 2x2 voie express. Most of it are routes nationales.

N79 runs from Montmarault to Mâcon. It is mostly a two-lane road, with some segments with 2x2 lanes. However, there is only one longer stretch of 2x2 west of Digoin.

N79 is loaded with truck traffic, which travels in convoys. There appeared to be more trucks than cars.

1. Most of N79 is a two-lane road with a double solid line. Prepare to set the cruise control to 90 km/h and wait until a passing lane appears (which are rare, there is one 18 km 2x2 segment).

2. N79 doesn't have a lot of interchanges. This area is relatively sparsely populated.

7. There is an 18 km segment with 2x2 lanes in the area around Cressanges. Otherwise most of the western part of N79 has 1x2 lanes, with only a few brief passing lanes.

N79 Moulins - Paray-le-Monial

Further down the road on N79 from Moulins to Paray-le-Monial.

1. N79 is mostly a two-lane road east of Moulins, 2x2 lanes don't start until Digoin.

2. There are some short divided stretches of highway.

A507 / L2 Marseille

They are now reporting an opening date of A507 / L2 in Marseille before the end of the month: http://www.20minutes.fr/marseille/19...nnel-rocade-l2

There were 350 issues with the new autoroute that were identified since the consortium handed the motorway over to the state. Not all of these are major issues, it's not uncommon to have completed tunnels with issues remaining to be done, and some of that can be completed after it is open to traffic.

A13 Paris - Caen

Exit 24 (Maison Brûlée) of A13 has been modified. The offramp from Paris used to exit earlier than the other ramps. The ramp has been moved to the rest of the ramps, making it a regular diamond interchanges. The project has cost € 8 million, the ramp was put into service in October and was officially inaugurated today.

Construction already started in 1994, but only limited funding was appropriated each year, with very slow progress. The 1999 Mont Blanc Tunnel fire complicated construction further. Construction was finally sped up in 2013 as a PPP project.

This will become a big bordel until the remaining section of L2 is finished. I think it would've been wiser to wait until next year and open the two of them together.

It will likely also have significant impact on the profitability of the Tunnel Prado-Carénage, which is a toll tunnel that connects A50 and A55, while A507 as a bypass that serves some of the same traffic flows, is untolled.

N141 Angoulême - Limoges

The final segment of the N141 expressway between Angoulême and Limoges will start construction in May 2017.

The last missing segment of four lane highway is located between Chasseneuil-sur-Bonniere and Chabanais. It is planned to be completed by 2021.

http://www.lepopulaire.fr/roumaziere..._12187850.html

I've driven this route in September, traffic is fairly light on the expressway, but that's illusion, as the passage through the town of Roumazières-Loubert is one big truck traffic jam.

Yes, however much of the traffic bypassing Marseille did not use the tunnels but road D4. It's a very congested urban road but A55 is also a nightmare in peak hours so paying the tunnel did not save much time. Plus you have to take it anyway if you want to reach the city center from the East.

L2 will definitely change traffic patterns once it's complete. I don't think the tunnel will cease to be profitable anyway. The most noticeable reduction in traffic will be in La Joliette interchange which is now a pain to get through. I also forecast a huge descent in revenue from the speed camera in Tunnel de la Joliette (50 km/h, big downhill grade) because that was where traffic cleared and people let loose.

About the Berges of Paris:

Meanwhile in car-phobic Paris, the saga of the closure of the riverside expressway through the city center continues. I've been lazy to report about the developments over the past months, but there have been quite a few developments.

In a nutshell, the mayoress of Paris is as pigheaded as ever. Now that she's been elected president of the C40 (the 'Cities Climate Leadership Group' that gathers 85 world cities committed to address climate change), she feels like she's almost at the head of a holy crusade against the dark, evil forces of the automobile "lobby". It has had the effect of radicalizing her even more. At this point she won't listen to anyone anymore, and she has even blackmailed the French president: under threat of running against him in the presidential election, she forced him to submit a bill in Parliament that will change the status of the City of Paris and make it more independent from the State, in particular by giving it authority over the expressways and the Périphérique, so that when the Socialists lose power nationally next year the next rightwing president cannot re-establish traffic on the riverside expressways. The bill is currently being examined in Parliament, but in a funny twist Hollande has just announced he won't run in the presidential election after all, so submitting that bill to the Parliament wasn't even necessary, but now it's too late to move back.

On the other hand, the toppling of the Socialist/Green coalition from power at the regional council last year and their replacement by a rightwing regional president has had a big effect. Since 1998, the Paris Region has been anti-automobile, due to the Green Party, and stopped funding road infrastructure and shelved all motorways and road projects (like completing the Francilienne orbital motorway which is the 3rd ring around Paris). Of course the regional authorities did no oppose the mayoress of Paris when she decided unilaterally to close the riverside expressway. Now this has changed. The new (female) president Valérie Pécresse has decided to put the regional transportation policy back on two feet: public transport and roads.

She has launched well needed work on the roads and motorways of the Paris Region, and her latest plan was in complete contrast with the previous Socialist-Green majority: she intends to improve traffic by putting in place real-time regulation of traffic and information of drivers, using emergency lanes during rush hours, upgrading various motorways, etc. Talking about roads is not a taboo anymore for the region.

Regarding the riverside expressway, she is now waging a total war against the mayoress of Paris. This is the first time in more than 15 years the right-wing parties dare oppose the anti-automobile ideology of the Left (before last year, they felt almost ashamed of defending cars and car drivers). The regional initiative I applaud the most is the new president has decided to destroy the media propaganda of the City of Paris. For the past 15 years now, each time the City of Paris has taken an initiative against cars, they have ordered their own studies, with cooked-up results that justify whatever they wish to do, and our media are so submissive and lazy they simply copy and paste whatever study the City of Paris gives them, without questioning the results or challenging the way the data are constructed and collected, or pointing out what's missing in those studies.

So it was of course no surprise when after the closure of the riverside expressway the 'studies' from the City of Paris showed that after all the closure had little impact on traffic, that pollution had decreased, that everything was very well in the best of world. Valérie Pécresse, the new regional president, very cleverly decided to set up an independent regional committee in charge of studying the effects of the expressway closure, to double check the studies from the City of Paris. The committee submitted its 2nd report last month, and it was scathing. It showed that contrary to what the City of Paris pretends, the closure of the expressway has greatly increased congestion, not just in the city center, but also beyond, and much beyond, including on the suburban motorways, which the City of Paris has conveniently left out from all its studies (they have only studied the supposed effect of the closure on the innermost areas of Paris).

The City of Paris has of course challenged the report from the regional committee, but what's really great is there is FINALLY a voice opposing the propaganda of the City of Paris that is being heard in the media. What a change!! The regional president has said the committee will publish regular reports for one year, and has already called on the prefect of police of Paris, who, until the new bill examined in Parliament is passed into law, has authority over the riverside expressways (if the bill becomes law, then the prefect of police, appointed by the national government, will lose authority and only the mayor of Paris will have authority over those expressways), to reconsider the closure of the expressway in light of the findings of the regional committee. The prefect of police has said he will assess the situation in March after 6 months of closure of the expressway, but I think it is unlikely he will reopen the expressway in the middle of the presidential campaign, UNLESS, now that Hollande has had to give up on a 2nd term and is said to be mad at all his colleagues in the Socialist party who have criticized him for 5 years as president, Hollande decides to say '**** off' to the mayoress of Paris who has been a vocal critic of Hollande, and tell the prefect of police to reopen the expressway just to piss her now that he's not running for a 2nd term anyway and has nothing to lose. Not the most likely scenario, given how weak Hollande generally is, but not totally impossible.

In the meantime, there's a general rebellion among the right-wing suburban mayors of Paris who feel the mayoress of Paris has decided this without consulting anyone at the Greater Paris level (the Metropolis of Greater Paris came into existence last January, but the mayoress has taken her decision without consulting anyone within the metropolis, as if the City of Paris lived in its own bubble, which is a caricature of 20th century isolationism that goes totally against the climate of metropolitan cooperation that everybody says is necessary nowadays).

Last week, 168 suburban mayors wrote an open letter to the mayoress of Paris to denounce the closure of the riverside expressway :

Quote:
Nous maires de la banlieue parisienne,

Elus des départements de la petite et de la grande couronne,

Nous sommes amenés à constater tous les jours que la décision unilatérale de la mairie de Paris et du préfet de police de Paris de fermer la voie sur berges Georges Pompidou a des conséquences dramatiques sur l’aggravation des bouchons pour la traversée de la capitale, sur le périphérique et, au-delà, des répercussions majeures en banlieue sur des axes de circulation essentiels (A4, A13, A86).

L’aggravation des encombrements entraine une détérioration de la vie quotidienne de dizaine de milliers de franciliens qui ne demandent qu’à exercer leur activité professionnelle, parfois à plus d’une heure de leur domicile.

Par un véritable effet domino, la fermeture des berges à Paris a des effets bien au-delà du territoire de la Ville et cela, ni l’Etat, ni la mairie de Paris ne veulent le reconnaître. Nous dénonçons cette indifférence à l’égard des habitants de la petite et de la grande couronne.

Pourquoi ne pas avoir engagé une concertation préalable avec tous les élus concernés avant de fermer de façon précipitée une voie expresse connue pour son importance pour la liaison ouest-est au risque d’aggraver les fractures territoriales de l’Ile-de-France ?

Pourquoi avoir écarté les conclusions de la commission d’enquête publique, présidée par un magistrat indépendant, qui avait pourtant -cas rarissime- rendu au mois d’août dernier un avis défavorable mettant en garde sur les conséquences potentiellement défavorables sur un périmètre beaucoup plus large que celui du strict territoire de la Ville de Paris ?

Pourquoi ne pas avoir engagé des discussions pour déterminer avec les collectivités franciliennes intéressées les nécessaires mesures compensatoires –création de parkings relais aux portes de la capitale, développements de transports alternatifs, établissement d’itinéraires de délestage etc.- auxquelles l’Etat et la mairie de Paris, à l’initiative de cette décision, devraient s’associer au titre de la solidarité des territoires ?

Pourquoi nier l’évidence de l’aggravation des embouteillages et des nuisances et accuser de « désinformation » les experts, lanceurs d’alerte, qui mesurent les conséquences néfastes de la décision en matière de transports, de bruits et de qualité de l’air ?

Pourquoi ne pas reconnaître que le souci de l’apaisement et de l’intérêt général impose d’engager des discussions avec les principales collectivités intéressées plutôt que de laisser « pourrir la situation » en misant sur une hypothétique évaporation de la circulation qui consiste en fait à se satisfaire d’un report durable des problèmes de la circulation sur le périphérique et en dehors de la capitale ?

Nous n’avons pas les réponses à toutes ces questions. Mais nous avons une certitude : les habitants de nos communes qui travaillent à Paris, les parisiens qui travaillent dans nos communes, et qui n’ont pas la possibilité de se déplacer dans des transports en communs insuffisants ou déjà saturés, sont fatigués et en colère. Ils attendent de nous une mobilisation sans faille pour obtenir que les projets de piétonisation de la capitale soient réexaminés dans la concertation, la transparence et avec le souci de la cohésion des territoires.

Voilà pourquoi nous avons décidé de déposer des recours en annulation de cette décision, ou de nous associer au recours déposé par la Région et des départements d’Ile-de-France.

The regional council and several mayors have also launched several lawsuits to have the closure of the expressway annulled in courts, but I doubt this will work as the decision to close the expressway is a political decision, and a court cannot annul it based on a political positioning only (the claimants would have to prove something was legally wrong in the decision to close it, and I can't see what exactly was legally wrong).

In any case, there hasn't been so much opposition to the Green and anti-automobile lobby in the Paris Region in more than 20 years, so this is all excellent news. Combined to this the fact that the City of Paris has decided to ban entry in the City of Paris for older vehicles, which again is a decision decided in their own bubble without consulting the suburban mayors, as if the Greater Paris Metropolis did not exist and pollution magically stopped at the administrative borders of the city, and you've got the recipe for a full-blown rebellion against the anti-automobile policies of the City of Paris. What most political leaders are saying is "yes we need to curb car pollution, but you don't do this by banning and enacting decrees in your little corner without consulting anyone and with total disregard for the wider agglomeration of Paris".

A61, Toulouse

Some photos of A61 in Toulouse. I took them in late August.

1. The A68 interchange. A62 from Bordeaux ends at this point, and becomes A61. The Toulouse bypass opened in 1988, completing both A61 and A62.

2. A61 has recently been resurfaced.

3. Toulouse-Centre.

5.

6.

A61-10 by European Roads, on Flickr

7. A614 is mentioned on several signs, but this number does not exist. It is A620, it's unclear why they still post it as A614, it hasn't been the official number for 20 years.

8. A very messy gantry sign.

RN 20 Ax-les-Thermes

The Ax-les-Thermes bypass of RN 20 was inaugurated today. It opens to traffic tomorrow. It is a 5.6 kilometer bypass, mostly a two-lane road, but a short section has passing lanes. It has cost € 70 million, construction started in 2002 and was planned to be completed in 2007, but lack of funding paralyzed the works most of the time.

A9 Montpellier

Media report that the new A9 around Montpellier will open even earlier than planned, they're now speaking of March 2017. The current A9 will become A709. It was originally planned to be completed by the end of 2017, so they're now 9 months ahead of schedule on the € 800 million project.

N7 Varennes-sur-Allier

The Varennes bypass of N7 opened to traffic this morning. It is a 5 kilometer segment of voie express, however it doesn't feature any interchanges yet.
