Traffic was difficult on Saturday on the main roads of the country for this second crossover of the summer, with a peak of more than 1,000 km of cumulative traffic jams at noon, a day classified red for departures at the national level and black in a large south-east quarter.

“The situation is in line with forecasts”, indicated in a press release Bison Fûté, which noted a peak of traffic jams of 1,082.5 km at 12:15 p.m. The difficulties were to remain very high until 8:00 p.m.

Qualified as “exceptional” by the interministerial body without however breaking the record of 1,086.5 km a year ago, the level of congestion was concentrated in particular in the west country on the A10 and in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes on the A7. The motorways recorded 157.9 km and 181.3 km of disruption respectively at the height of the morning.

Thus, at the end of the morning, from Saint-Arnoult-en Yvelines to Poitiers, on the A10, it took more than an hour longer than the usual 2:30 a.m. and an additional 2:45 a.m. compared to the usual 2:00 a.m. to reach Bordeaux from the Poitou capital, according to Vinci, which manages the highway.

On the A63, 2:45 a.m. instead of 1:55 a.m. was needed towards the Spanish border from Bordeaux, with an almost equivalent time in the return direction for which the day was classified red in the territory.

At the same time, in Rhône-Alpes-Auvergne, Vinci also indicated that on the Autoroute du Soleil, road users had to drive for 4:15 a.m. instead of 01:35 normally to reach Orange from the south of Lyon. In the opposite direction, they had to add 01H20.

On the Mediterranean arc, the difficulties were mainly concentrated on the A9 with a travel time of 02H55 instead of 01H40 for go to Narbonne.

Last Saturday, a peak of more than 860 km of accumulated traffic jams was recorded.

Traffic will be more fluid on Sunday, with a day classified as green at national level but orange in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and in the Mediterranean arc.
