A9 motorway weekend nightmare

LanguedocLiving, Dec 2

The A9 motorway was blocked in both directions at the weekend between Agde and Sète by Gilets Jaunes protesters.

The recommendation was to take the smaller roads to travel, but protesters were out in numbers blocking strategic roundabouts.

As at Sunday afternoon, exits to Agde (34), St-Jean-de-Védas (32) and Narbonne south (38) were all closed in both directions.

Carcassonne west (23) was closed, and the Castelnaudary exit (21) was slow due to the presence of more protesters, but some cars were getting through.

Good luck if you have to travel.
