Travelling on French motorways is about to become slightly more expensive, with tollbooth charges set to rise by an average of 0.8 percent from February 1.

Toll charges did not increase in 2016, but the French government and the motorway operating companies have argued that revenues need to be increased to pay for €800 million of new investment. The plan calls for 32 new intersections and 25 car-sharing facilities, of which 11 will be in the PACA region.

A total of 5,000 jobs will be created by the work, due to start at the end of 2017, according to the French authorities, who have said that tolls will go up by between 0.1 and 0.4 percent each year between 2019 and 2021.
