France paves way for highway upgrading

France paves way for highway upgrading

By Staff Writer - September 19, 2016

French_AutorouteFrench motorways are going to be improved in a scheme costing a total of one billion euros, once regional authorities have been consulted and given approval, according to the French press.

Part of the cost will be met by increased toll charges, which will rise by less than two percent from 2018 until 2020, the secretary of state for transport, Alain Vidal, told the Journal du Dimanche. The regional consultations, which started on Monday, September 19, will be coordinated by local Prefects.

The money will be used to upgrade major interchanges, create car-sharing facilities in urban areas, and environmental improvements, rather than additional highways. Work is expected to start before the end of 2017 and provide 5,000 new jobs.
