Millions of cars, thousands of kilometers covered every day, on a network across an entire country. French highways are among the most developed in the world. There's the A40, a dizzying feat that required construction work in extreme conditions. When first envisaged, the Paris Ring Road seemed almost a crazy adventure. How did the workers manage to cut a swathe around the inner city of Paris? Or to construct a bridge over the railroad tracks in the middle of the French capital?
Not to speak of having the Ring Road pass under the Prince's Stadium. Then, there’s the A10, between Paris and Bordeaux. It holds the record as the longest highway in France, designed to cope with all kinds of weather. The A10, the A40 and the Paris Ring Road all set records and are stunning feats of civil engineering.
