Road/motorway/freeway projects in Europe

The motorway/freeway replacing the section of the old N88 road between La Croix de Mille and Taunus, in south-western France, was opened to traffic yesterday. This is another milestone in the long march towards the completion of the motorway/freeway that will someday link Toulouse and Lyon, the 2nd and 4th largest cities of France, through the difficult terrain of the Massif Central.

The French government is unfortunately dithering on whether or not to build the most difficult part of the route, which lies beyond the section opened yesterday. Something as big as the Millau Viaduct would need to be built to cross the huge river canyons in that region, which means billions of €€€.



En attendant the stunning central sections of that motorway that will someday hopefully be built, here are pictures of the section opened yesterday, by Gilles Auriol from Forum Sara.
