Motorway carriageway repair works


Motorway carriageway repair works

The first phase of the A28 Rouen / Alençon motorway carriageway repair works shall begin on 19th August by Alis for the comfort and safety of motorway users. This phase covers the section located in the Eure Department (27), between the A13 / A28 interchange and the Bernay junction (n°14). At a rate of approximately 8 km per week, the works consist in replacing the carriageway surface for all lanes, over the whole width of the motorway and in both directions, in order, once completed, to provide a perfectly flat and smooth carriageway surface. Subject to any adverse weather conditions over the coming weeks, the repair work is scheduled to be completed by 30th October 2013. The full timetable of works is available here.

For the execution of the carriageway repair works, one carriageway shall be closed whilst the traffic is diverted to the other carriageway, which over the length of the repair works will be in single file and in both directions. However, during the summer holiday weekends where heavy traffic is expected, both carriageways shall be open and normal conditions of circulation shall apply, from Friday midday to Monday midday.

The presence of motorway road works being uncommon, Alis will implement specific information and safety procedures. Large format signposts shall be erected on approach to the section being repaired and information shall be displayed at all the toll booths.

In addition, all information concerning the carriageway repair works is available on the site (also accessible from the home page). Moreover, so that motorists may prepare their journeys as efficiently as possible, Alis can send motorists automatically and in real-time, by email or by SMS, any and all information concerning the A28 Rouen / Alençon motorway carriageway repair works. If interested, motorists need simply to sign up here.

Alis would also like to remind motorists that the upmost caution is required when driving along the sectors under repair. To avoid any incident and to protect the road works personnel, traffic must slow down on approach of the works and strictly adhere to the sign-posted speed limits.
