Extension of existing A719 motorway to west Vichy

Built and operated by APRR, the A719 motorway was commissioned on Monday, 12 January 2015. The 24-km Gannat-Vichy section has extended the existing A719 to the west side of Vichy.
The Ebreuil partial junction (No. 13) on the A719 motorway was completed with two new spurs on 28 November 2014. This junction allows motorists to avoid crossing Gannat and so cut their travelling time by taking a bypass. The benefits for the people of Gannat include lighter traffic in the town centre and, therefore, improved safety and living conditions.
