Rouen is okay to drive through, i did so last year. You have a short section which is a boulevard with traffic lights, and you have to pay attention to the signs.

The A28 to Calais is much shorter than via Paris anyway. Take a good look on the A28 if you like sports cars, a lot of rich (or pretend-rich) British people like to take a trip there.

If you travel on North-South axis, it's better to avoid Paris by using A26 or A28.
You have to drive through Rouen or Reims but there are projects to change it.

A26 is one of the most boring Autoroutes by the way, but a fast connection, with more British people than French dudes on the road.

Wrong: Autoroute des Anglais is A26. A28 has no name for the moment: Autoroute des Estuaires use partially A28 between Abbeville and Rouen.

I think he means A26, because we were talking about the A26 earlier.

The French government will extend the A34 (Reims - Charleville-Mézières) to the Belgium border south of Charleroi! It will cost 330 million euro's.
Works will begin this fall and should be completed somewhere 2011.

Yes, an A5 is planned from Charleroi to Rocroi.

They will start construction in 2008 to 2012.


It is one of the most quiet motorways i've ever seen.

I like those minute signs. You see a lot of VMS in France.

Yes I like it too, 8 minutes for go at Porte de Bercy the traffic is heavy but fluid.

The A4 motorway is really scenic at the entrance in Paris you see, subway bridge, railway bridge, ugly high rises blocks, modern offices buildings, and many u/c buildings.

An other scenic freeway in Paris is the N118, you take it at the A86 N118exchange in Velizy and some kilometers farther you see a beautiful view of la Defense.

Not really since it is in the other side of the A86 motorway, and the tunnel is not opened yet. so the better for go here it's to take the A6 motorways change for the A86 motorway in the direction of Versailles and at Velizy you will see a big freeway interchange, to the N118 to Porte de St Cloud, but in fact the freeway stop at the bridge in the Seine, the section in Boulogne Billancourt to Porte de St Cloud is a big boulevard. it is like the end of the A14 and the boulevard in Neuilly

A more detailled map of Paris motorways and freeways.
I know a worse system for a big city, the one of London.

Lille A25 is said to be horrible towards Dunkerque. The A22 has some old signage, aswell as the A27 and A23 as can be seen in the pics.
The A1 is okay, mostly busy, but okay. The N356 is a fast connection.

If you follow the signs Gand (Gent) you are being directed eastwards around Lille via Tournai and Kortrijk (Courtrai). But when you follow Lille N356/A22 you're usually faster outside rushhours.
