A86 is the outer peripherique of Paris?

Imo A 86 is the central urban core ring road whereas the A 104 is the Paris agglomeration ring road ( even if not completed yet).
The "peripherique" is a mere ring road around the city of Paris.
In the 1980s another ring road (A 87) was planned between A 86 and A 104...but was cancelled.

Let me show you some pictures of motorway A25 and expressway N225, which both are part of E42 European corridor. The report starts several kilometres out of Belgian border on regional road D948 to be finished near Saint-Paul-sur-Mer.













Just for a while, sorry


Much better, what a relief.




















To be continued soon.

Well, it's getting more interesting. Motorway ends up soon and the quality of surface...ends as well. I don't know whether N225 was built as a motorway and then downgraded to 'N' road because of its substandard quality, or it was designed as a grade separated dual carriageway from the beginning. Anyway, it still carries A25 interchanges' numbering.





Lower speed limit has been applied.

























Still more to come.

Here's something bizarre, discovered in browsing through a road atlas, and something more bizarre, discovered in checking it on Google Maps:

1) Why would two toll roads have this sort of interchange?

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie...,0.043774&z=15

Generally, you see this sort of thing where there's a toll booth on the interchange - the reason for configuring the interchange like that is to have all the traffic pass through it. If it's an interchange between a toll road and a non-toll road, traffic heading toward the toll road would be (if they're paying the old-fashoned way) getting the ticket that lists rates and will tell the attendant when they exit where they got on or (if they're paying electronically) recording the fact that they're entering the system; traffic heading the other direction will be paying their tolls, either by handing over the ticket they got when they entered the system, along with cash or a credit card, or by having their transponder read. So such a thing at a toll-road-to-toll-road interchange? Are there two toll booths? A single one where you pay for your trip on the road you're leaving and record your entry to the other one...?

2) On visiting Google Maps to check the situation....how the hell old is the satellite imagery?! The A19 through there opened about two years ago, on the photo there's only the faintest suggestion of the right-of-way, like the first step is plowing the field....

It's seems this type of exchanger is better to save some space and compatible with the low level of traffic of this interchange.
- A simple Cloverleaf should be about the same but the exchanges aren't compatible with the speed limit of 130km/h due to crossing.
- A full stack use lot of space and/or a lot of money for this light amount off traffic.

Finally they chose this compromise between costs/space/traffic.

A77 has an open toll system there if I remember correctly, not sure about A19. It's also possible the toll road operator of the A19 is a different one than on A77.

The twice are an opened toll system, the operator is not the same, but it's not a problem for that, the two operators know where the user take in then take out the motorway for to divide the fee.

they are going to ban the radar signs along the roads.

I wonder how this applies for radar warnings in Gps navigation maps.

I thought the point of radars was to slow down the pace, not to fine as many motorists as possible...

I think the purpose is to make drivers respect speed limits everywhere, but I doubt that will work. Radar signs are suitable for dangerous sections, so drivers pay attention.

If they going to ban all radar signs in the roads how they will know if the drivers respect the speed limits? Especially in small towns, villages (and btw what is the speed limit in populated areas in France?)
