This is one of my favorite coastal routes in France, the Sete - Agde seaside highway:

I drove on that road actually. Not sure it's the most beautiful coastal road in France though.

Oh..and when clicking on the Traffic button, we can see Paris trafic jam scheme, which is quite different from London's. It is a pity only France and UK have this feature.

The main difference is that Paris has a lot of Autoroutes & Expressways within the outer ring road (N104), while London barely has any. Motorways are usually shown in traffic information, like in Paris, but London doesn't have any.

The great thing about this road was that you can just park your car and walk into the sea. Of course, there are more spectacular coastal roads, like in the Alpes-Maritimes, but they don't offer easy access to the sea.

Please everyone, stop answering this guy.. he's just spamming threads with (stupid) questions and comments to get the biggest post number... Answering him makes it worse.

Photos of A1 in Martinique, direction Lamentin-FDF, probably the only proper motorway by western standards in Lesser Antilles. There are some upgrades going on, including new interchange.

I also have pictures of other national roads of which a lot of them are 2+2 and are in great condition, if anyone is interested.

There is also a motorway in Guadeloupe, even though it's not officially classified as an "autoroute".

This "motorway" in Guadeloupe has some really strong curves. But there are also expressways (2 if I remember correctly) in Guadeloupe which are great and pretty straight.

What about the A75 in France between Issoire and Coudès? It has some of the worst curves I have ever seen, yet it is nonetheless classified as an autoroute.

I haven't drive yet on A75 so I can't tell. But speed limit 90 km/h there in Guadeloupe is appropriate and almost too much in some curves.

But I think this road in Martinique shouldn't be classified as autoroute, as there are no appropriate parallel roads so it's really hard for cyclers and mopeds to avoid it and that's why it isn't hard to spot them on this motorway.

It is a nice section but serious bottle neck.

A75 Pézenas - Béziers

The southern end of A75 is nearing completion. For many years, the A75 ended at Pézenas, and through traffic was directed to A9 via other roads, which caused significant congestion during the summer.

This is how the A75 around Béziers will look when it is completed (the last remaining section will open in the summer of 2011).



A more detailed ordnance map showing exactly how the A75 will merge with the A9. Note that the current toll station (péage) of Béziers-Est
(shown in blue on the ordnance map) will be dismantled.
