There is/was no fixed link there. Just a ferry service.

Does anyone know what's up with the French highway forum?

http://forum.sara-infras.com/

Been getting an error message all week.

Never mind: It's back.

Yesterday, I had a stop on a aire at the A1 (I think it was near Compiègne) with this view.

It's not all new: it was already open south of the A42 and the south end was, and still is, at the A43, which runs from Lyon to Grenoble. Not knowing the area, but just having looked at enough maps of France, I'd guess the point of the A432 was to serve the airport.

Google Maps (as of this moment) still doesn't show the new segment, so you can see it how it was; I've centered this link at the south end: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie...,0.264015&z=12

Don't you just love Viamichelin maps? In my opinion they are by far the best in Europe. Google Maps is easier to use but Viamichelin looks better.

Exactly. A432 is also interesting for traffic coming from the north to the Alps without having to mix with local traffic on the Lyon bypass.

Michelin maps are by far the best road maps in the world, although their new maps are of inferior quality compared to their older ones. I don't know why they have changed. The new maps do not show the built-up areas as distinctly as the old ones.

Old maps with black built-up areas, very neat.

New maps with pinkish blurry built-up areas, not as neat.

At my parents' place there are some very old Michelin maps from just after WW2 that belonged to my grandfather. One of them in particular shows the Bordeaux area around 1950. I'll try to scan them next time I'm there. It's fascinating to see how the road network has changed around big cities in 60 years.

Here's another batch of A406 around Mâcon, which will open in a few weeks (or maybe even next week).
