A bank holiday in France on Monday, August 14, will extend by one day the busiest weekend on French roads as July holidaymakers head home and August vacationers leave for holidays. The A7 and A9 are almost certain to be the worst affected, while the A8 will be very crowded, particularly on Friday.

The Paris region, the Rhone valley and the Mediterranean are all expecting very heavy traffic. The worst hours to travel on Friday, August 11, will be between 10 am and 8 pm, while heavy traffic will be on the roads from as early as 5 am on Saturday, until 5 pm. Sunday will see the worst traffic from 9 am until 6 pm and Monday will be problematic from about 10 am until 6 pm.

The local A8 motorway, between Aix-en-Provence and Italy, will experience its heaviest traffic load on Friday, August 11, from late morning until evening.

Traffic will continue to be heavy into Tuesday along the major arteries in France as families return home, particularly from 4 to 8 pm.
