HI we are travelling back via the Pont Du Normandy on Saturday and would like to know if the road works are still in place as it caused a massive jam on our way down to the Vendee last week.

Thanks

Hi

Just checked online and on THIS WEBSITE it says the raodworks are there until the end of August (Jusqu'à la fin du mois d'août des travaux de réfection de la chaussée du Pont de Normandie et du viaduc du Grand Canal provoquent des bouchons.)

Could you not travel via Rouen as an alternative? I believe that this Saturday, the first Saturday in August, is normally the worst for travelling, so the bridge could be even worse. Just an idea.

Good luck whichever way you decide!

Depends where you are coming from and going to. For Le Havre use Tancarville, for Calais etc use Pont Brotonne.

If there is a breakdown on the single carriageway you can be stuck for ages.

I don't read much French but I think this website says it's going on 'til 7th August.

Sorry I can't seem to hyperlink on my phone

GraemeStuart99:  - you won't actually go through Rouen itself, you'll skirt around the ring road - admittedly it will be busy but you can avoid the dead centre.  However, sounds like all the fuss may be over sooner than we thought.

Thought this might be worth a "bump" for those travelling this weekend.

Travelled back up last week nothing in sight. The way down had been a pain, especially with ignorant Brits not following the signs and trying to overtake the queue.....
