AFAIK, this section isn't done yet, last time I took it it was pretty much in the same state as shown in the satellite pictures (GE).

If this section should be done, previous cases of split highways gave us A6a/A6b/A106 ; A5a/A5b/A105 ; A15/A115 ; A4/A140...
Or maybe it will simply remain D170 between Gonnesse and A104/N2 interchange, well more likely N170 same as they recently classified the northern section from D104 to N104....

I'm not sure but this section could be named as A170 when CDG bypass will be done

A new section of Autoroute A75 opens today near Béziers, so A75 is connected to A9. A small section is still missing between Valros and Servian, which should be opened in late 2010.

Wow! Finally!

For those who don't know: this was basicly the only remaining non-motorway section to complete an alternate and shortest way of traveling from the mediteranean coast (Valencia, Barcelona, Perpignan etc) to Paris.

(it was already all motorway via Toulosse, but it's slightly longer)

yes A75 is now conected with A9, as chris said a part is missing beetwen Servian and Valros and is planned to open before summer 2011

map of the section connecting A 75 and A9 built by ASF (in french)

http://www.asf.fr/control/index.aspx...e-A75-A9.12481

for A750 a section near La Taillade is being built, it will connect the 2 sections of A750, what you can see on Viamichelin is the actual situation of the motorway

But the A750 still does not connect to the A9 which is stupid (I know from experience, getting lost in Montpellier trying to find the entrance of the A750 ).

PS: The first 20 km of the A750 after Montpellier are blissful. Very scenic and quite. A must drive!

that was my next question - is there any plan for Montpellier's western bypass? or north-eastern?

Some photos showing the section of the A75 opened yesterday:





One short section still needs to be completed. It will open only in the summer of 2011 (and not late 2010). Right now, coming from the A9, the section that was opened yesteday ends abruptly after a few kilometers:



And then they are working on those last kilometers that should be completed by the summer of 2011 (picture taken yesterday):

maybe the western bypass will be realised in the future to provide a good connection beetwen the 2 motorways but for the rest of the ring the situation will probably remains like that for a long time

A rare example of concrete road in France. This is on the island of Ua Huka, in the Marquesas (les Marquises).

Some hairpin turns on the Tenda road:

They have been replaced in 1882 by one of the first road tunnels in the Alps:

Because of watching Tour de France since 1999, indeed concrete roads in France are really rare, instead of "paved" old routes which are still existing today in some areas of North France...

A few kilometers of concrete coating can be found on A6 motorway south of Paris near Villabé.

Few countries use concrete on non-motorways though. I don't think the tour comes on the motorway, right?

A short video that I shot between Lourdes and Argelès-Gazost on the D821 last week. The position of the camera isn't optimal but it at least gives you a good view of the Pyrenees!

I took someone to Beauvais airport so I took a few photos too. I made a mistake and didn't go on the A16 autoroute with peage, but as it turns out, the national road paris - beauvais (D1001) is awesome.



Paris motorway network - nord


one of my favourite parts - bridge over port on Seine (A15)


for next few photos I don't know where they are - paris has to many motorways around.






this is where I made a mistake and turned right, apparently my gps was set to avoid toll roads.




I could join the A16 here again




sometimes 2+2, sometimes 2+1...








nice road to drive. low traffic, and quite often 110 speed limit.






... but in villages it's 1 + 1










villages look kinda funny.




beauvais

Sorry to go off topic, but how would I make that sort of map (I mean a Google map with a route drawn on it)? And what would be really cool would be if the reader could then open it so that they could zoom and so on.
