A more direct east-west route

The A466 is a new 4-km motorway link that has connected up the A6 and A46 motorways north of Lyon since Saturday, 4 July 2015.
This constitutes the penultimate link in the Bordeaux-Geneva trans-European corridor and plays a part in providing a more direct, practical east-west route.
On the regional level, the A466 allows traffic to bypass the Lyon urban area instead of going through the centre. It provides direct access for users travelling from Lyon to the A6 motorway and vice-versa.
