Until 9 p.m., it is advisable to avoid the A13 motorway between Paris and Rouen and the A7 motorway between Lyon and Orange.

The roads are once again very busy in France. At issue: Pentecost Monday, which allows the French to enjoy a long weekend, like last week. Bison Futà © announces a “very difficult circulation” in the direction of the departures in Île-de-France as well as in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, and “difficult” in the rest of the country.

Thus, the first traffic jams formed in the Paris region on Friday. Shortly after 5 p.m., the Sytadin site, which provides real-time traffic information in Île-de-France, recorded nearly 410 km of traffic jams, a traffic flow deemed “exceptional” , where the traffic was more “usual” but above average this morning around 11am with 150km of traffic jam. Until 9 p.m., it is not recommended to take the A13 motorway between Paris and Rouen and the A7 motorway between Lyon and Orange.

If motorists see red on the roads, so do people who have planned to take the train. As part of a social movement that disrupts SNCF traffic this Friday in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, delays or cancellations have been announced. Several lines coming from or going to the Rhône-Alpes capital are concerned, such as those from Grenoble, Bourg-en-Bresse, Geneva, Avignon or even Clermont-Ferrand.

For the day on Saturday, traffic should remain “very difficult” in the direction of the departures in the Paris region and “difficult” in the rest of the territory, announces Bison Futé. We will have to wait until Sunday before traffic returns to normal. The flow of traffic will return to red again in Île-de-France and orange for the other metropolitan regions as of Monday in the direction of the returns.

It is not good for Parisians to venture beyond the periphery, especially without its Winchester.
