The day of Friday July 23 is classified orange at the national level in the direction of departures. Saturday promises to be even more complicated, with red in the direction of departures, orange in the direction of returns.
The weekend may once again be quite busy on the roads of France, predicts Bison Futé. From Friday July 23, the day is classified orange in the direction of departures, but will remain green in the direction of returns.
“The day promises to be busy in the direction of departures. The majority of trips to vacation spots will take place early in the afternoon,” notes Bison Futé who recommends in particular leaving or crossing the Ile-de -France before noon.
Saturday July 24 red in the direction of departures
Saturday promises to be even more complicated and could give rise to many traffic jams as was the case last weekend. The day is classified red in the direction of departures, orange in the direction of returns.
Bison Futé foresees “significant traffic difficulties on all of the country’s major routes”. Main expected difficulties: slowdowns and traffic jams in the Rhône valley on the A7 motorway, on the A8 and A9 motorways along the Mediterranean as well as on the A10 motorway to the southwest.
In the direction of departures, it is particularly advisable to leave or cross Île-de-France before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. and, in the direction of return, before 1 p.m.
Sunday July 25, some hot spots
Back to green on Sunday over much of the country. More localized difficulties are still to be expected.
“The traffic will be quite dense towards and along the Mediterranean. Difficulties to reach Île-de-France could arise at the end of the afternoon,” notes Bison Futé.
