The border checkpoint on the Franco-Brazilian border is being built as we speak right now. It will be located on the French side of the Oyapock River. It is the first Franco-Brazilian border checkpoint ever built. Workers are working non-stop on the checkpoint, the access road, and the international bridge itself to open everything in December, just before the end of Lula's presidency, because Lula wants to inaugurate the bridge with Sarkozy before he leaves the presidency. Here are the latest pictures of the checkpoint taken 10 days ago.













The French road authorities started to put the upper layer of pavement on the access road to the international bridge last week. Here are the pictures taken last week.

Latest pics of the Franco-Brazilian bridge over the Oyapock River taken 2 days ago. The pylons have almost reached their final height (80 meters). The deck and the cables should be installed soon now.

Since we are in France till the middle of the bridge, then I hope they'll use French standards till that point !!!

Makes sense, eh ??

A4 Reims

The new A4 alignment south of Reims was opened to traffic last night:

Quote:
Contournement sud de Reims ouvert

La portion de 14 kilomètres inaugurée le 18 novembre est ouverte !

L'A4 bis enfin mise en service dans la nuit de lundi à mardi (entre le 22 et le 23 novembre). Cette portion permet d'éviter la traversée de Reims. A terme, il est envisagé de supprimer le tronçon de l'A4 qui coupe la ville de Reims en deux.

Les travaux qui ont duré un peu plus de 2 ans et demi s'élèvent à 245 millions d'euros.

Désormais, l'inquiétude vient des riverains à propos du bruit que va engendrer cette nouvelle autoroute à proximité des 11 communes traversées. Ils entament un combat, et réclament que la vitesse soit limitée à 110 km/h. D'ailleurs, une pétition circule. La moitié des habitants de Bezannes ont signé.

Pour l'instant, le ministère des transports n'a pas donné d'avis et le préfet de la Marne refuse de répondre à nos questions. Or, à la Sanef (Société des Autoroutes du Nord Est de la France), on prépare déjà les panneaux de 130 km/h.

You got me. I'm curious too. I suppose it would be a D-road.

I saw that too, and just assumed I'd never noticed. But could you also say "de la France"?

Nope, it's not really grammatically correct !

But you could say "de France" indeed, or "Françaises", or even "Les Autoroutes en France" ..

In the article posted by Chris it says that the ambition is to demolish the old road.

And seriously, who changed the thread title? Autoroutes de France, it should be.

It would be stupid to demolish the old road, it would still remain useful for traffic within Reims or that has a destination within Reims.

I took some pics of the N20 south of Paris between Etampes and Orleans. It's mostly 2x2 or 2+1. It's 2x1 only trough the villages of Chevilly and Cercottes. There are seriously run down homes next to it in Paris suburbs and in some of the villages it passes through. The inhabitants seem to have fled the noise and pollution. In some of the villages the speed limit is still 90 km/h.



It's rather curvy despite the flat terrain.





Some trees on this stretch :







The landscape isn't particularly appealing, loads of pylons and windmills.









Here the buildings aren't run down, the road is 2x1 and the speed limit is 50 km/h.







Orleans suburbs, it's 2x2 again.
