A8 maintenance works to affect travel between Monaco and Mougins this week

Until Friday 19th January, motorists on the A8 should expect some traffic modifications and affiliated disruptions as Vinci Autoroutes, the company that maintains the motorway system in the region, completes various maintenance projects. 

Though Vinci will be doing its best to limit disturbances to commuters by only working during nighttime hours, there may still be some areas that will see added congestion due to works.

Between 8.30pm and 5.30am, the Exit 42 ramp in the Mougins area will be closed each night until 18th January. Drivers are being directed to the Exit 41 Mandelieu-Est ramp in its place. 

The La Riviera Française service station near Beausoleil will be subject to a complete shutdown between 2pm on 16th January and 6am on 17th January. Drivers being asked to use the Aire de la Côte d’Azur between Mougins and Antibes as an alternative.
