The A13 motorway closed until May, here are the best solutions for thousands of motorists

The first kilometers of the A13 motorway from Paris will be closed at least until May 1, causing a daily headache for many motorists .

The struggle is far from over for the hundred of thousands of motorists who use the A13 motorway every day to enter in or out of Paris. The reopening of the section between the Saint-Cloud tunnel, in the west of the capital, and Vaucresson, in Hauts-de-Seine, is not for right away. Closed since the evening of April 18, after the discovery of a large crack in the roadway at the Saint-Cloud viaduct, the first kilometers of the Normandy highway, which has its source at proximity from the ring road, will remain inaccessible to all vehicles at least until May 1st. This is what it is all about. of the best scenario, the one in which work could begin by the end of this week…

Needless to say, very many French people, the majority of whom are workers established in Hauts-de-Seine and Yvelines, will have to be patient in the coming days. This closure, over around ten kilometers, has the consequence of extending the travel times of motorists between their home and their place of work. If some have adapted at the start of the week, by leaving exceptionally earlier or by opting for teleworking, the fact that the work is underway #39;énow extend over a minimum of ten days risks having repercussions on traffic, already very dense in this area, especially during rush hours.

This axis provides access to the the A14 motorway which connects, over 21 kilometers, the business district of La Défense, near Nanterre, to the Orgeval where it joins the A13 (open at this location).

The second solution to bypass the closed part of the motorway is to take the Nationale 118 at Porte de Saint-Cloud then the Duplex of the A86. ;nbsp;which leads onto the N12 then the A12 at Bois d'Arcy before joining the A13   ; Rocquencourt. Finally for others, those residing in the very close western suburbs, there is the possibility of relocating. to travel on the smallest urban roads, slower and subject to numerous traffic hazards.

Beyond additional kilometers to your destination travel, and therefore an increase in fuel consumption, the A14 motorways and the A86 Duplex are chargeable. They are even expensive, especially the Duplex which stretches from Vélizy to Vélizy. Rueil-Malmaison where the price per kilometer can reach 1 euro!

Certain politicians, first and foremost Valérie Pécresse, president of the region, have also asked' &agrav; The state is free of charge. from the A14 during the works. The announcement, Monday evening, of the extension of the closure of the A13 by one week, i.e. from April 25 to May 1 in the best case, will maybe shake things up. Because the anger of motorists is likely to grow, especially if the closure of the A13 comes to fruition. drag on, while the May 8 bridge approaches quickly. big steps and with it the flow of Parisians eager to spend a few days of rest in the tranquility of Normandy…
