In France, roads are the main support for mobility of passengers (88% of trips) and freight (87,6%). Since the 90s, the road network has been developed in order to connect areas, to open up the regions to Europe, to link the Channel and Atlantic coasts and major seaports to large cities and Europe, to answer the increase of traffic and to restrict the transit traffic in the capital region. The challenges of sustainable development have become a cornerstone of transport policy in France.
