Also, it is still closed to the back of the Autoroute du Soleil, A7 in France. There is a traffic jam for more than 3.5 hours. “Yes, that’s still huge, but the delay this afternoon was 6 hours.”

Compared to last Saturday, there is also an extra step. “Then there was 930 kilometers of traffic jam in France around noon, and today it was 1090 kilometers.”
