As early as 10:30 a.m., traffic on French motorways was hampered at intervals of about 900 kilometers, according to the BRF.be portal.
The first Saturday of August in France is considered “black”, because it is at this time that many vacationers traditionally go on vacation. The A6, A7 and A10 motorways are particularly busy heading south.
In Belgium, heavy traffic is expected on the motorways to the coast and Luxembourg. Also, on many highways, drivers will have to allocate additional time due to delays caused by road works.
German motorways are also busy. In Switzerland, there is a traffic jam in front of the Gotthard tunnel.
