Serious traffic delays can be expected from Friday, July 27 to Monday, July 30, as holidaymakers cross over on their departures and returns.
The fourth weekend of the summer period is also the first crossover and is notorious for its traffic jams and accidents. This year the challenge will be increased by the very hot weather.
Heavy traffic is expected around the major cities in the Paris region, in the Rhone Valley and around the Mediterranean.
The A8, between Aix-en-Provence and Nice, will be the most problematic in both directions, with the lunchtime hours being the most challenging.
Saturday is expected to be the worse day in the South, from 09:00 until 20:00.
The A7 towards the South will be difficult, especially from as early as 05:00 on Saturday until 18:00 as holidaymakers travel from the Paris region.
Sunday, July 29, traffic will intensify in the direction of returns in the late afternoon and early evening.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Prince's Palace Library, and Colonel Tony Varo, Superior Commander of the Public Force, have been distinguished by the French High Authorities.
For ninety minutes it looked as if AS Monaco would go into the next stage of the Champions League in a goalless draw in the second leg of the contest with Spain’s Villarreal, moving ahead on the basis of the 2-1 away win last week. But a brilliant last-minute goal from Fabinho, in the 90th minute of the game at Stade Louis II on Tuesday night, meant that Monaco won 3-1 on aggregate and with a clear victory in both games.
Monaco were the favourites for the night, and although injuries have taken their toll of ASM’s roster, Villarreal came into the game with the same problems on a bigger scale. ASM can be well pleased with the result, a boost for the home team in a gruelling month for the Principality’s players.
