I have a question:

I've been told that the "Lille", "Strasbourg", "Lyon", "Bordeaux", etc. signages on the Périphérique have been replaced by "A1", "A3"... signages.

Is that true? I suppose it is. Why? Do you have any pics?

lol, this circular motorway has no real metropolitan use for the Paris region.
It's just a way to detour Paris for both provincial and foreign travellers.

But may be it will behave like a metropolitan belt in the future.

Any chance of a extension of the french A66 towards spains C-16? It could be very useful for through traffic, especially in the summer. It would be very expensive though.

No... don't think so.
It would have to cross the pirenees, so besides the high cost you would porbably have an unnaceptable environmental impact.

They should widen the AP7/A9 to at least 2x3 lanes all the way, and remove the stupid border station, causes too many traffic jams.

They are going to do that soon (there's already a project but I think the works haven't started yet.
The AP-7 will become 2x3 all the way from Tarragona till the border, with 2x4 in the Girona bypass (which will be free of charge).

I hope the french also widen the A-9 from Perpignan to the border! And the removal of the border station would be great too.

Also, on the spanish side they are building the A-2 paralel to the AP-7 (from the end of the C-32 till at least Figueres... I don't know what are they going to do at the border).
It will be a nice and modern freeway, although it will have a design speed of 100km/h, which is compreensible (not using a 120km/h design speed), because there's already a parallel toll motorway. Still, that doesn't mean it will be limited to 100. It just means that there can be som stretches limited to 100. Which isn't too important for the regular user.
And almost all the trucks will use it instead of the AP-7 for sure.

Yeah as said, i drove the A2 once from Lleida eastward. Incredible amount of trucks, but almost no trucks on the AP2 in the same direction.

Yeah. And this future stretch of the A-2 (from the C-32 to the border) will be much better than the old stretch of the A-2 between Lleida and Barcelona, so it will only help.
