A43 La Tour-du-Pin Est

Providing direct access to the motorway

The partial junction project for La Tour-du-Pin Est was a response to the needs and requirements of local authorities, local people and businesses.
 
Partial junction No. 9.1 serving Lyon opened to traffic on 22 December 2014, providing direct access to the motorway network from the east of La Tour-du-Pin. It also enables local authorities to prohibit passage through their towns to heavy vehicles arriving from Les Abrets. Instead they have to use the motorway.
There are considerable benefits for local people, in terms of safety and quality of life.
