The difficulties were announced. Unsurprisingly, there are people, lots of people on the roads for this Saturday classified red by Bison smart throughout France, black in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.
The traffic is dense with a level of congestion described as “exceptional” by Bison futé. The peak was reached at 12:15 p.m. with more than 1082.5 kilometers of accumulated traffic jams. Most of the difficulties are on the A7, in the Drôme where the slowdowns are the strongest for this second weekend of the crossover between holidaymakers “Julytists” and “Augustians”. A heavy goods vehicle accident notably created a traffic jam of around thirty kilometers on the A7.
Saturday, in the direction of departures, traffic is announced “very difficult” on the vast majority of roads, even “extremely difficult” in particular in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and on the Mediterranean arc.
In the direction of returns, the day of Saturday is also considered “very difficult” throughout the territory. Sunday August 7 and Monday August 8, traffic will be fluid on the territory (green days), except for the Rhone Valley and along the Mediterranean (orange) where travel difficulties will be expected, throughout the day in the both directions.
