Another busy weekend on the roads of France. Nearly 1,000 kilometers of traffic jams were noted on Saturday August 14 in the middle of the day, classified red by Smart Bison in the direction of returns.
The peak in traffic was reached at noon, with 960 km of slowdowns for this new summer crossover, between the departure of new holidaymakers in August and the return of those who had left earlier.
The Rhône valley particularly concerned
The main difficulties are concentrated on the A7 motorway in the Rhône valley, with more than 110 km of traffic jams and accordion traffic between Lyon and Marseille.
Other difficulties are also to be noted around the large agglomerations of the Great West such as Rennes, Nantes, Le Mans, Rouen, or even Orléans, where there are 5 to 25 km of traffic jams and slowdowns in various sectors and in the approaching some toll gates, observes Smart Bison.
In the direction of departures, the day is classified orange, but red on the Mediterranean arc, the Pyrenees and New Aquitaine. Traffic difficulties for those taking the vacation route are likely to increase in the afternoon. Sunday, on the other hand, was classified green in the direction of departures and orange in the direction of returns.
