They reconsidered basically all major infrastructure projects; TGV, autoroute, canals, etc.

Though the autoroute projects have a major advantage; it pays for itself through tolls and concessions. TGV doesn't do that. Here's a link which states that TGV consumes 38% of the budget while accommodating only 2% of travel.

What fantastic numbers for a scheme that's meant to be filling the A28 gap.

You can argue that this project will accommodate three different traffic flows;

* north-south following A28 (Calais - Le Mans)
* north-south (Calais - Orléans via A154 and to-be-upgraded corridors)
* east-west (Rouen - Paris)

For sure, but lets say the A133-A134 bypass of Rouen was numbered A28 and the route heading between that and the A13 was A133.

The first flow would go A28-D18e-A13-A28 rather than A28-A133-A134-D18e-A13-A28. Two numbers dropped.

The second would go A28 - A133 - A13 - A154 rather than A28 - A133 - A13 - A154. No change

The third would go D18e - A28 - A133 - A13 rather than D18e - A134 - A133 - A13. One number swapped. OK, maybe one number added if taking the D9014 or ex-N51 into Rouen.

A304 Charleville-Mézières - Rocroi

Opening dates have been announced for A304 in Northern France.

The Le Piquet / Tremblois-lès-Rocroi - Rocroi section will open on 22 December 2017. This is from N43 north to the existing voie express around Rocroi. It is approximately 8 kilometers long.

The longer Boulzicourt - Le Piquet section will open to traffic on 15 June 2018. This runs from A34 south of Charleville-Mézières to N43 at Le Piquet. I assume N43 will be declassed to a route départementale at that time.

So does this get the E420 designation? And if so, how far south does the E420 go?

Thanks, I've only checked the main page, not "Histoire". It was previously announced to be opened in September 2017.

Some of the big ticket items like canals in the east and TGV lines under the Alps (Lyons - Turin) are massive and come in at €10bn + each. Nor can they be built in stages as only the full project delivers any benefits. The TGV Atlantique extensions to Rennes (from Chartres or Le Mans) cost €4bn in fairly benign terrain by the time it opened this year for around 200km of new track, c. €20m a km and I think the other extension from Tours Bordeaux cost €10bn.

Meanwhile France needs effective motorway bypasses of Paris ( finish the A104) and of Lyons (to the west) like they did with Montpellier earlier this year.

The Rouen Bypass is partially a Paris Bypass too of course.

N202 La Roche Percée

The 'Roche Percée (pierced rock) is a section of N202 running through a rockwall near Annot, approximately 70 kilometers from Nice.

D2202 Gorges de Daluis

Departmental road D2202 (former N202) runs through the Gorges de Daluis, a very deep gorge of the Var River near Guillaumes. It is located in the Alpes-Maritimes departement.

D2202 runs through the gorge, with many pullouts where you can enjoy the fantastic scenery. The gorge is so deep you often cannot see the bottom. D2202 is an interesting road, southbound runs through narrow tunnels, northbound splits off several times to run along the gorge, effectively making it a set of one-way roads.

The red-brownish rock gives it a completely different look and feel than the nearby Gorges du Verdon and the surrounding mountains. This particular rock type is only on a 15 x 4 km area. The nearby Gorges du Cians run through similar terrain but is not as spectacular.

The road through Gorges du Cians were one of the most spectacular roads in earlier times when it run directly through the gorge and not in tunnels. You can still get the feeling when you walk on the old road.

(source, the name L'Epineul is a mistake.)

This is the very important connection of N141 to N10 west of Angouleme. The existing junction at Fléac is prone to queues. The construction of the new junction was started in the early 2000s but suspended in 2006 due to interference with the high speed railway project LGV SEA (Ligne à Grande Vitesse Sud-Europe Atlantique) between Tours and Bordeaux.

What had been finished is now named N1141. Some ghost bridges can be seen in Google streetview1 and streetview2 and in this article.

But obviously the construction was not completely suspended. At the point where the future N141 will cross under the LGV a bridge is built! This can be seen in Google, too.

Now works will be resumed.

Here is some sort of tender.

The general secretary of the prefecture hopes to open the new expressway in the end of 2016

There is also a blog about this topic:
http://collectif-riverains-rn141.blo...rentelibre.fr/
I posted this more than 2 years ago. Now works seem to start:

http://www.charentelibre.fr/2017/11/...ie,3167166.php

and should be finished in 2020 as far as I understand

And finally a video from early October:



This is the width of that mammoth overseas viaduct.



In theory it could accommodate 8 lanes, but they will use it only for 6 car lanes (plus 2 bicycle lanes, which is slightly ridiculous, but then the 'Greens' had to be placated).

Some more N141 news, the voie express between Roumazières and Chabanais will start in early 2018 and it to be completed in 2020/2021. By that time, construction will start on the section between Chasseneuil-sur-Bonnieure and Roumazières. This is the final missing link of four lane voie express between Angoulême and Limoges.

The N12 / D222 interchange at Saint-Brieuc opened to traffic on 27 November.

D222 is the new southern bypass of Saint-Brieuc. Plans call for a western extension to N12, to create a full bypass and possibly even rerouting N12 across the southern bypass.

A507 Marseille

The northern portion of the L2 / A507 around Marseille will open 'in a few months', according to this article:

http://www.laprovence.com/article/ed...-vers-la7.html

They also say that the average volume on the southern portion is around 65,000 vehicles per day.

A 5.5 km section of 2x2 voie express was inaugurated today in Vendée. It opens for traffic on 11 December. It runs parallel to the older D949B and connects the town of Chantonnay to A83 at Bournezeau.
