Traffic will be “extremely difficult” over the vast majority of the territory and “very often very difficult in Burgundy, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and on the Mediterranean arc”, notes the road information site.

Difficulties to be expected on the A10

For returns, Friday and Saturday will also be busy “and very often difficult in the South West”. Bison futé specifies that “particular difficulties are expected on the A10 near Bordeaux and on Saturdays between Bordeaux and Niort”.
