Closure of the A13: Pécresse “asks the State to take charge of making the A14 free”

The closure of the A13, at least until this Monday, is a “terrible hassle for Ile-de-France residents and Normans”, commented Valérie Pécresse on Sunday on X. So to “guarantee access to Paris for all during the work », the president of the Île-de-France region “asks the State to take charge of making the A14 free and to SNCF Transilien to strengthen the public transport offer in the West”.

The road linking the capital to Normandy was urgently closed last Friday, after the discovery of a transverse crack 50 to 80 centimeters deep in places, caused by a “landslide”. The A13 motorway, which connects the capital to Rouen and Caen, will remain closed in both directions of traffic between Paris and Vaucresson at least until Monday April 22 inclusive. Monitoring of the crack is ongoing and will continue until Monday April 22 to allow a first progress update. Depending on the results of this monitoring, a reopening could be considered during next week,” the authorities added in a press release. New information should be transmitted this Monday evening.

Valérie Pécresse is not the only one to demand that the A14 be free of charge as a result. On Saturday, Renaissance MP for Yvelines Karl Olive invited the private Paris-Normandy motorway company to “make an effort” for motorists, “on an exceptional basis”. “For 72 hours, open the highways for free. You will do a good deed for the French. It won't break your company's budget. It won’t make a hole in the racket,” he declared on FranceInfo.
