Car traffic is interrupted this Friday morning on part of the A47 motorway south of Lyon. An accident near Givors forced security teams to close the motorway towards Saint-Étienne. The incident, which could involve a heavyweight, according to Le Progrès, would have occurred around 6.30 a.m., but luckily did not result in any injuries.

For the moment, Onlymoov does not give information on the duration of the outage, but motorists are advised to avoid the area as several kilometers of traffic jams have already formed near Givors. Two kilometers of traffic jams are recorded in the direction of Saint-Étienne and the traffic in the direction of Lyon is currently “accordion” over six kilometers.

A scoop ? not at all, it is time to finish A45 and ban A47 to heavy goods vehicles.
