beautiful motorway. I counted only 2 bigger viaducts and 1 tunnel. Jura mountains aren't that hard to pass?

edit: I checked on google maps, there are more...

A39 Bourg-en-Bresse - Dole - Dijon

A set from almost the entire A39 from Bourg-en-Bresse via Lons-le-Saunier and Dole to Dijon. These photos were taken in early September, but I haven't uploaded them until now. The first section is in the fog, but the sky clears pretty abruptly further north.

Enjoy

route:

How wide per lane is the autoroute? It is the same as the british/interstate 12ft lane?

There's an A3 in France... but only exists for a few km East of Paris.

Considering the French numbering system, A3 was probably supposed to be a number for a northeast route, pretty much what N2 is nowadays.

The A3 is only a bit shorter than the original plan, though it goes in a different direction (along what was the B3).

It was to have gone along the A103 and A199 to meet the A4.

I noticed there is no good route from the northwestern suburbs along A15 / A115 to central Paris.

If you drive the 2x4 A15, it doesn't continue to the BP, but you have to use A86 to stay on high-standard routes. However, there is no A1/A86 interchange, so you need to use regular streets to get to the BP. If you drive via La Défense, you will eventually end up on N13, which isn't a motorway / expressway either.

It what we call an unfinished and cancelled project.

The interchange between the Peripherique and A15.


We clearly see where the A15 was planned to run in northwestern inner suburbs.

I was wrong - the A199 wasn't part of the A3 plans - though it did meet it.

Red : Motorway built
Dark purple : canceled
Green : modified project
Orange : plan Pompidou (freeways in the center of Paris) canceled
Light purple : freeways built
Brown : still approved.

I wonder how would be Paris if everything was built.

west and north of paris there's not one single motorway link to A86. There's A13, but there A86 ends.

The plan Pompidou was not very feasible. It would require massive disruption of an existing dense environment, the suburban Autoroutes were mostly built at the same time as the suburbs grew from villages to towns.

From a traffic point of view, an east-west route through the Paris proper wouldn't be the worst idea, but the problem is such a connection would attract through traffic, which you'd rather leave on the Boulevard Périphérique or better: A86.

A trend I noticed recently is to put roofs on many suburban motorways.

The freeway between Porte de Vanves and Montpanarnasse (after the A10) was close to be realised.
Here we see where the freeway should be build, now it is a park.


The same for the A10 motorway between Massy and Porte de Vanves.
The place left and insfrastructures built for the A10 are now used by the Antlantic highspeed railways since 1990

A31 Dijon - Langres

Autoroute A31 northbound from Dijon to Langres. This section of A31 was recently widened to 2x3 lanes, reducing summer congestion.

route:

I doubt that nowadays local authorities would approve a motorway running in densely built areas.
Some buildings were built over the place left for the motorway.

that's too bad. entire Paris area is dense, so that would mean no motorways?? that should not be a reason.
