Bison smart: a Pentecost weekend classified red on the roads of France

The month of May and its avalanche of public holidays continues, with this Pentecost Monday which will cause many motorists to leave for a long weekend. If you have the chance to leave for a few days, be careful on the roads, as the traffic will be particularly heavy there. This is in fact the last long weekend before the summer holidays.

He should experience “a lot of leisure travel”, warns Bison futu in his forecasts. “The desired destinations are generally a short or medium distance from home. Visitors to coastal areas will be favored and traffic will be difficult, especially if the weather is favorable,” continues the road safety organization. Many motorists will also take the road for short excursions, for the day for example, which explains the density of traffic. Weekend departures will be spread between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

Smart Bison sees red this Friday

If you leave this Friday, be careful on the A7, along the Mediterranean Arc and on the Atlantic coast, first warns Bison futé, who sees red in the direction of departures and orange in the direction of returns. In Île-de-France, traffic will be heavy from late morning towards the various toll gates, particularly on the A6 and A10 motorways. The Paris ring road and the A86 and A6B motorways will also be affected by these difficulties.

Furthermore, the A13 motorway should still be closed to traffic between Paris and Vaucresson. Motorists from the Ile-de-France region wishing to reach Normandy are therefore advised to take the A14, the A15 or the N12.

A difficult Saturday in Île-de-France and by the sea

Traffic will be difficult at national level, in particular on the axes serving the Mediterranean arc, such as the A7 and the A9, but also like the day before, on the Atlantic coast (A63 and N165). Bison futé has classified the day as orange in terms of departures throughout France.

In Île-de-France, from the start of the morning, traffic will be heavy on the A6 and A10 motorways. From mid-morning, traffic is expected to intensify significantly, making it difficult to travel on these highways. The axes which converge towards the A10 and A6 motorways could also encounter traffic difficulties.

Monday classified orange

It is in the direction of the returns that Bison futé sees orange at the national level for the day of Monday, quite logically. The motorways of the Mediterranean Arc (A7 and A9) and the axes serving the west of the country (A63, N165) will concentrate the majority of the difficulties.

In the direction of returns towards the Ile-de-France region, from late morning, traffic will be heavy on the A10 and A6 motorways. Traffic difficulties will be recorded throughout the afternoon and could still be present until late in the evening (mainly on the A10). The A13, which is once again open in the direction of returns to Paris, could also experience traffic difficulties from mid-afternoon and these could still be present until late in the evening.
